Should Bowe Bergdahl Be Court-Martialed? After 50,000 Entries This Poll Gives A Resounding Answer

Over 50,000 readers were polled on the question: “Should Bowe Bergdahl Be Court-Martialed?” Your answers were heard loud and clear, and here are the results.

An overwhelming 99% of poll takers answered, “Yes, he abandoned his duty and deserves to be court-martialed.”


On Monday, the Army announced another investigation into the Bergdahl case, despite the conclusion from a 2009 investigation that Bergdahl left his post at will. The Army investigation is pending clearance from Army medical staff. No reports indicate a timeline for when Bergdahl could be court-martialed, but mounting pressure from the public could cause the Army to conclude an investigation shortly. A strategic roadblock by the Obama administration would delay the Bergdahl proceedings as the President continues to defend the lopsided prisoner swap.

The Bergdahl poll gathered responses from over 50,000 readers in the weeks after the Taliban-Bergdahl trade.
