America seems more divided than ever . . . but don’t lose hope. Even GUNS N’ ROSES got back together. And there’s something on the horizon that could UNITE AMERICA. It’s the Super Bowl . . .
And according to a new poll by Public Policy Polling, Republicans, Democrats, Independents, basically people of ALL walks of life, want to watch the New England Patriots LOSE.
53% of the nation is rooting for the Atlanta Falcons to win this coming Sunday . . . compared to only 27% who are pulling for the Patriots. So, who’s actually down with Tom Brady’s deflated balls? Only 23% of Republicans . . . just 27% of Democrats . . . and 31% of Independents.
The Patriots are also the most hated team in the NFL . . . 21% of fans say the Patriots are their least favorite team. The Dallas Cowboys are the second least-liked at 19%, followed by the hapless Chicago Bears at 12%.
But that being said, 52% of fans think the Patriots will win. Only 36% are putting their money on the Falcons.
America is split on Tom Brady . . . probably because of his inescapably rugged handsomeness. He got the most votes for ‘America’s Favorite Quarterback’ with 22% of the vote. But, he also got the most votes for the ‘Least Favorite Quarterback,’ with 24%.
But even though America can be united by football . . . there are still a lot of confused people out there. In the “favorite NFL quarterback” poll, Tim Tebow received more votes (6%) than Cam Newton (2%).
Tebow started 14 games in the NFL from 2010 to 2011, with a win-loss of 8-6. Newton is a three-time Pro Bowler, who’s taken the Carolina Panthers to the Super Bowl. He was the NFL MVP in 2015. And he’s STILL PLAYING.
Now, Tebow won a Heisman Trophy in college. But so did Newton. Tebow is a Christian, but so is Newton. So it’s unclear why people are so in love with Tebow as their “favorite quarterback.”
