According to a recent poll by the University of Texas/ Texas Tribune Newspaper, nearly half of the registered voters from the state TEXAS currently hold an unfavorable opinion of the NFL!!!
TEXAS TRIBUNE - UNIVERSITY Of TEXAS report the combination of the NFL National Anthem Protests incurring the wrath of President Donald Trump and the medical evidence demonstrating that repeated concussions can cause long-term brain damage have seemingly made NFL Football less popular than High School and/or College Football.
UNIVERSITY Of TEXAS - AUSTIN Government Professor DARRON SHAW is director of the poll.
Dr. DARRON SHAW stated;
“Trump made this an issue. He understood that making this about the national anthem was good politically. It’s very clear it has hurt the NFL, and that it’s polarized politically and polarized racially.”
Overall, 47 percent of voters said they have an unfavorable opinion of the NFL — including 28 percent who said they have a very unfavorable opinion — while 27 percent said they have a favorable impression of the league.
Black voters had the most positive opinions of the NFL — 49 percent favorable and 24 percent unfavorable. Among Hispanic voters, 29 percent were positive and 39 percent were negative. White voters were the least impressed of all: 20 percent have a favorable impression of the league, while 55 percent have a negative impression.
