Military Spending Policy - Political Parties and Stances

Military spending seems to be higher of a budget priority for Republicans than for Democrats. The Republican Party platform makes multiple calls to strengthen the military, presumably requiring increased funding. It also condemns cuts to the defense budget. Comparatively, the Democratic platform points to waste within the defense budget, which can be interpreted as a call to reduce defense spending to some extent. Polling shows that 56% of Republicans would increase defense spending, compared to just 26% of Democrats.
