Fox News polled registered voters. And it turns out – even with the skew of 13% more democrats – more people approve of the National Rifle Association than The National Football League ! Now THAT’S funny! Looks like the National Football League has some serious work to do to try and salvage their beleaguered league.
The previous poll for an NFL favorable rating was in 2013 – more people approved of the NFL at a whopping 64 %! That is a massive 18% drop. The NFL has massacred it’s once pristine reputation. Americans once gathered at football games to have a beer, cheer on their favorite teams and have a good time without worry of politics inserting itself. Not anymore. And it shows in this poll.
Here’s who was polled and the breakdown: Democrats 47% (+/- 4.5% margin of error). Republicans 34% (+/- 5% ) and Independent 18% ( +/- 7% margin or error). That is a huge MOE for any poll and should shoot off alarm bells. You can guess the 7% MOE were most likely Democrat. The poll shows 49% approve more of the National Rifle Association than The National Football League at 46%. The poll took place October 22-24, 2017.
If you are still boycotting the NFL until they stand and respect the flag. Drop a line below and let us know.
