Could 2014 be starting off as the year all parties agree on at least something?
According to a new Public Policy Poll Americans across all party lines do not think the Cowboys should be considered ‘America’s Team’ for football.
The poll reveals 60% of Americans do not believe the Dallas Cowboys should be called ‘America’s Team’ compared to 23% who think they deserve this label. When broken, this sentiment is agreed on upon across all political lines with 61% of Republicans, 57% of Democrats, and 63% of independents don’t consider the Cowboys to be America’s team.
“In a time of unprecedented political division there’s one thing Americans agree on across the board,” Dean Debnam of Public Policy Polling said in the polling data. “The Cowboys aren’t America’s team, in fact they’re America’s least favorite team.”
When it comes to America’s 2013 favorite team the award goes to the Denver Broncos, led by Peyton Manning who is the clear winner as the most popular Quarterback in the NFL with 22% of the vote.
Unfortunately for all those Manning fans you won’t get to see him this weekend because he earned the first-round bye, but you can watch the wildcards playoffs on Saturday and Sunday.
