  1. It would probably be very difficult to measure considering how many military ballots come from overseas (especially since this has changed since 2002) and how difficult it would be to poll them or even count them.

  2. Deconstructing the military vote is going to have to wait until the precinct level returns are published. That won't happen until the votes are canvassed, and the analysis is going to take someone identifying the heavily military precincts.
