Men Favor Military Draft for Women A Lot More Than Women Do

Voters aren’t all that supportive of a military draft, but if there is one, they think women should be just as eligible as men. Women aren’t so sure of that.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 30% of Likely U.S. Voters think the United States should have a military draft. Fifty-six percent (56%) see no need for a draft. Fourteen percent (14%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
