Now that President Donald Trump has made his views and stance clear, releasing a harsh speech agains the NFL protesters which disrespect the primary American values during a speech this Friday, a new poll has surfaced from the Remington Research Group revealing that the majority of American citizens agree with his tough stance, which ultimately signals more danger and trouble for the controversial National Football League.
The survey asked over 1,500 likely voters if they supported President Trump’s belief that NFL players should stand during the national anthem, and face possible fines or removal should they choose to kneel during the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’
The poll revealed that 64% of Americans sided with the president, stating that the pro-athletes should “stand and be respectful during the national anthem.”
Just 25% disagreed with the President, with 11% remaining undecided.
Even more problematic for the NFL, participants were also asked if the protests would make them more or less likely to watch their “favorite team’s games in the future.” A whopping 50% said they would likely tune-out if players continue the demonstrations, with 20% saying it made no difference.
