16% of National Football League fans say they won't watch the Super Bowl

16% of National Football League fans say they won't watch the Super Bowl”

The poll found that 48 percent of Americans say they'd prefer the child to play a different sport - up 8 points from a similar poll taken four years ago.

A new poll indicates that a plurality of Americans are on board with President Donald Trump in disapproving of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem at the Super Bowl.

By contrast, there has been nearly no change among African-Americans (59 percent of whom say they closely follow pro football, versus 58 percent in 2014); Latinos (53 percent are close followers now, versus 51 percent four years ago); or women (47 percent now, same as in 2014).

The Journal/NBC News poll interviewed 900 adults from January 13-17. But another section of the survey suggested that injuries and concerns over head trauma are also part of the issue.

This news comes on the same day as another poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News indicates that there has been a 24 percent drop in men who say they follow the National Football League "closely" since 2014.

"The poll did ask people if they approved, disapproved or had no opinion about NFL players who protested during the playing of the National Anthem throughout the season".

The NFL is losing much of its core fan base, according to a new poll.

.

33 percent of Americans believe the National Football League has tried to reduce and prevent concussions - down from 41 percent in 2014.

51 percent say they don't follow it closely, a 9-point increase.

Seton Hall surveyed 706 Americans across the country, via landlines and cellphones, from January 29 to January 31.
