A little-noted October poll of more than 4,000 readers of Military Times shows overwhelming support for John McCain across the service branches, age groups, enlisted men and officers. Only in the category of race do poll numbers shift very dramatically, with black readers polling heavily in favor of Obama. (There is also a less significant but noticeable shift in support  among women.) Here are some of the numbers (and here is the story, with links): 

White/Non-Hispanic: 76% McCain, 17% Obama

Hispanic/Latino: 63% McCain, 27% Obama

Black: 12% McCain, 79% Obama

Age 18-34: 65% McCain, 27% Obama

Age 35 and above: 70% McCain, 21% Obama

Enlisted: 67% McCain, 24% Obama

Officers: 70% McCain, 22% Obama

Women: 53% McCain, 36% Obama
