A new Gallup Poll gives Mitt Romney a big election edge over President Obama among veterans. Romney leads Obama 58% to 34% among veterans, who make up about 13% of the electorate, Gallup reports.
Among non-veterans, Obama leads Romney by four points.
"Obama and Romney are tied overall at 46% apiece among all registered voters in this sample," Gallup reports. "Men give Romney an 8-point edge, while women opt for Obama over Romney by 7 points. It turns out that the male skew for Romney is driven almost entirely by veterans."
