Poll: NFL Sinks to Least Popular Top Professional or College Sport


According t a recent Winston Survey poll, the NFL sinks further in popular into among sports.  As player continue to disrespect the National anthem and the American flag by taking a knee and its gutless owners condone it, American fans are telling the NFL to take a hike of their own. As reported at The Washington Examiner, “From the end of August to the end of September, the favorable ratings for the NFL have dropped from 57 percent to 44 percent, and it has the highest unfavorable rating – 40 percent – of any big sport”.

Keep it up NFL and you will go the way of the dinosaur. As it is, I now watch exclusively college football and have not tuned a NFL game on in two weeks. Start being respectful or you will lose all of your fan base.

Sports poll

In the month of September positive ratings sank from 57 percent to 44 percent. Unfavorable ratings are at 40 percent.

Among a general sample of registered voters, September showed a drop in favorable ratings from 57 to 44 percent according to the Winston Poll from the Winston Group.

Unfavorable ratings went from 23 to 40 percent.

One important demographic, men ages 34-54 showed a more dramatic increase in disenchantment with the NFL.

That group went from 73 percent favorable and 19 percent unfavorable to 42 percent favorable and 47 percent unfavorable.

The Washington Examiner:

Worse for football, which was already seeing lower TV ratings and empty stadium seats, the month of protests and complaints about them from President Trump drove core fans, men 34-54, away, the most significant indicator that NFL brass aren’t in touch with their base.

The Winston Poll from the Washington-based Winston Group found that the attitude of those fans went from an August rating of 73 percent favorable and 19 percent unfavorable to 42 percent favorable and 47 percent unfavorable, a remarkable turn against the sport.

According to the poll analysis, “more critically for the NFL, the fall off in favorables occurred among important audiences. Among males, NFL favorables fell 23 percent, going from 68 percent to 45 percent. In looking at a more specific audience, males 34-54, NFL favorables fell 31 percent, going from 73 percent to 42 percent. Among this group the NFL has a surprising negative image, as it went from +54 percent in August to -5 percent in September.”

Poll Finds that Americans Agree With President Trump … 64% Believe Players Should Stand For National Anthem


The most recent Remington Research Group survey regarding opinions on the NFL, its players and owners should bring shock to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, the 32 NFL team owners, NFL players, networks and sponsors. In a survey conducted September 25, 2017, one day after the reprehensible and disrespectful behavior of the NFL refusing to stand for the National Anthem, 64% of Americans polled said NFL players should stand and be respectful during the national anthem.


The NFL owners and players best take a good look at what fans had to say about their product. The people do not want politics in their sports entertainment and they do not want players disrespecting the American flag, the National Anthem or the United States of America. This is a friendly warning shot across the NFL bow, you best start to know who your fan base is because we can tune in something else at any time and leave all you over-entitled, millionaires and billionaires in the lurch to actually have to work for a living.

NFL poll

Americans are watching less NFL football because they want no part of politics in sports, left or right. Football is supposed to be an entertainment diversion, not CNN, MSNBC or Fox News. The NFL best get their act together and understand what their customer wants. Because it is not disrespect for flag or country, or to the memories of those who have laid down their lives so that men can play a game. Real heroes where military, police, fire and first responder uniforms, not football jerseys.

PPP Poll: GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s Approval in Kentucky at 18 Percent


According to  The Hill, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has an 18% approval rating in Kentucky. So before McConnell decides to mouth off and talk about President Trump’s demise, he might want to contemplate his own. If this swamp clown had any respect for the good people of Kentucky, the US Senate and the Republican party, he would step down and relinquish the reins to some one else who was up to the job. But instead, swamp creatures like McConnell just believe in m,maintaining power and could care less about the will of the people. Meanwhile, President Trump has a 60% approval rating in the Blue Grass state. McConnell represents all that is wrong with politics and the GOP, a tiring, old, dinosaur who is more worried about hanging on to power and doing nothing, than actually doing what he campaigned on. The issue Mitch isn’t that we and President Trump have “excessive expectations,” the problem is that you are a liar and an establishment politician who needs to go. The fact that you think that expecting our elected leaders to do what they campaign on for 7 years is excessive, more than tells us enough about you … DITCH MITCH!!!

Senate Republicans Address The Press After Weekly Policy Luncheon

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has an 18 percent job approval rating in Kentucky, according to a new survey.

A Public Policy Polling survey found just 18 percent of respondents approve of the job McConnell is doing, compared with 74 percent who disapprove.

If McConnell were up for reelection today, 37 percent of respondents said they would vote for the Kentucky Republican. Another 44 percent would instead choose a Democratic opponent, according to the survey.

An additional 19 percent said they were unsure.

McConnell’s seat will be on the ballot next in 2020.

Earlier this month, President Trump took aim at McConnell after the Kentucky Republican vented about the president’s “excessive expectations” for his agenda.

Trump questioned why McConnell had not yet been able to pass a new healthcare plan and Trump’s top spokeswoman said there is “some frustration” with the Senate leader.

The poll also finds that just 27 percent of respondents approved of the Senate GOP’s healthcare bill that collapsed last month.

Nearly half, 49 percent of respondents, disapproved of the legislation.

President Trump has an approval rating of 60 percent in Kentucky. Slightly more than one-third of respondents, 36 percent, disapprove of the job the president is doing.

POLITICO/Morning Consult Poll: Democrats Surge Ahead on Generic Congressional Ballot


According to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, Republicans trail Democrats by 7 percentage points on the generic congressional ballot. I would say three things when it comes to this poll. One, it is way too early. Two, the establishment GOP and so-called leaders like McConnell and Ryan better get on board with President Trump and stop their nonsense unless they want to be in the minority party. Three, these are the very same polls that said that Hillary Clinton would be the hands down winner of the 2016 presidential election.

Maybe Republicans can start acting like Republicans and stop lying to the American people. Their lies regarding the appeal of Obamacare have many saying, why did we even elect them?

Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell

Republicans trail Democrats by 7 percentage points on the generic congressional ballot, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, the Democratic Party’s greatest advantage on the generic ballot since the poll began asking the question this past spring.

The survey, conducted last Thursday through Saturday, shows a generic Democrat leading a generic Republican, 44 percent to 37 percent, with 19 percent of registered voters undecided. The two parties were tied, 40 percent apiece, in the previous week’s poll.

The results came on the heels of a week in which the GOP effort to repeal Obamacare crashed and burned in the Senate and President Donald Trump’s chief of staff left the White House abruptly.

Democratic voters back the Democratic candidate by an almost-unanimous margin, 90 percent to 2 percent. Republicans are slightly less unified, supporting the GOP candidate, 85 percent to 5 percent. Among independents, the Democrat leads, 34 percent to 25 percent, with 41 percent undecided.

Senate Poll Shocker: Kid Rock Leads by 4 in Poll of Hypothetical Matchup with Debbie Stabenow for Michigan US Senate Seat


In a hypothetical general election US Senate matchup, a Delta Analytica poll stated that Kid Rock leads by 4 percentage points over incumbent Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow. The poll also concluded that 54% of respondents preferred Kid Rock (Robert Ritchie) to only 46% for incumbent Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow. Just what is the level of panic in the Democrat party if they cannot win Michigan with an establishment, incumbent candidate? Earlier in the month, Kid Rock stated that he was going to run for Senate. It’s time to drain the swamp America, the folks in Michigan can make a huge statement! If Republicans can win the Michigan US Senate seat in 2018, the 2018 mid-term elections are going to be a political bloodbath for Democrats.

Kid Rock Poll_071417

To gauge Ritchie’s chances in a hypothetical general election matchup, Delta Analytica conducted a poll from July 14-18 of 668 Michigan residents. Of respondents who stated a preference between Debbie Stabenow and Robert Ritchie, 54% stated they would vote for Ritchie while 46% said they would vote for Debbie Stabenow. These results could indicate that Ritchie is a popular figure in Michigan, Debbie Stabenow is unpopular, or some combination of concurrent trends. The relatively large, 44%, number of undecided respondents may be due to the early stages of the campaign.

Michigan, once part of the Democrats vaunted “Blue Wall” is suddenly a battleground where Democrats and Republicans are now fighting for blue collar voters. This became a central theme during the 2016 election season, where Donald Trump won over the white working class vote. The question now is whether that support will rub off onto other Republicans candidates in the 2018 midterm elections. Robert Ritchie looks to capitalize on this fervor and promote his brand with song lyrics that appeal to these same Michigan voters, despite never having held any political office.

Born Free – Kid Rock

Words from Kid Rock via The American Mirror

“Dinner time at my house. What do you think Schumer is spoon-feeding Stabenow tonight?” he tweeted.

When Ritchie teased his intentions, he ripped politicians.

“I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bullshit!” he said on his website.
