The Washington Post has a new poll out in Virginia that should be setting off alarm bells at Trump Tower. Not only is the GOP nominee losing to Hillary Clinton by a 14-point margin, 52%-38%, but he’s losing the military vote by 8%:

Buried here. Clinton trouncing Trump with military voters (+8pts). This group is reliably Republican. Insane. https://t.co/MY2Z9oewPX

Trump has made his support of the military one of the planks of his campaign. If he’s losing this vote nationally, oh my…
"Stay on message" is the chant. I always do – trade, jobs, military, vets, 2nd A, repeal Ocare, borders, etc – but media misrepresents!

Crooked Hillary Clinton will be a disaster on jobs, the economy, trade, healthcare, the military, guns and just about all else. Obama plus!

In trade, military and EVERYTHING else, it will be AMERICA FIRST! This will quickly lead to our ultimate goal: MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
