A new poll found 33% of NFL fans boycotted the league the year, with the majority citing support for President Donald Trump as the reason.
From Yahoo Finance:
The survey, conducted from Dec. 8—11 of 2017, polled a national sample of 1,726 adults ages 18 and up. It found that 1,233 of those people identified as football fans.Note, for some reason they did not include "in protest of players kneeling."
That could be a lot of the 46% who said "other."
