Raleigh, N.C. – PPP's annual poll about the NFL finds that voters across party lines can agree on one thing- the Cowboys are not 'America's Team.' Just 23% think they deserve that label, to 60% who disagree. And this is one sentiment that doesn't divide along political lines- 63% of independents, 61% of Republicans, and 57% of Democrats say they don't consider the Cowboys to be America's team.
In fact the designation the Cowboys do win out for is America's least favorite team. 23% say the Cowboys are their least favorite team with no one else coming particularly close- the Bears get 13%, Patriots 9%, Broncos 8%, Steelers 6%, and Giants 5%.
“In a time of unprecedented political division there’s one thing Americans agree on across the board,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “The Cowboys aren’t America’s team- in fact they’re America’s least favorite team.”
