    Obama's monetary collections from the various wings United States Military outpaces Romney even though Romney polling among military members doubles Obama. The donation comparison comes from campaign finance tracking website OpenSecrets.org.

    The previous political king of military support, votes and donations, was Rep. Ron Paul, who at one point during the Republican Primaries held a 10 - 1 campaign finance advantage over his opponents in terms of the military donations.
