The study touted be the Pentagon as proof DADT could be repealed was a fraud. The study was done by email and only 28% responded. 54% of the responses came from Coast Guard members. The Coast Guard is a fine organization, but hardly representative of the other branches of the military.
(WND)- On page 36 of the 267-page Pentagon study, the report's authors note that they conducted a "service member survey" asking 103 questions online of 115,000 personnel – a got a 28 percent response rate overall based on an e-mail awareness campaign. The Pentagon acknowledges there that 54 percent of the survey respondents are Coast Guard members.Another problem with the email survey is responses could be tied to individuals. I am sure they promised the survey results would be anonymous, but most military knew the answer Team Obama was wanting. Those oppose may have been afraid to respond.
