Survey Suggests The Green Bay Packers, Not The Dallas Cowboys, Are America's Team

Wednesday December 21st, 2011

Public Policy Polling conducted a poll that suggests that the Green Bay Packers are far and away the NFL’s favorite team.

In their most recent survey, 22% of those polled said that the Packers were their favorite team in the NFL. The second most favorite team was the Dallas Cowboys, who received 8% of the vote. The Bears, Giants, and Steelers rounded out the top five.

According to the poll, the Cowboys were ranked No. 1 as America’s least favorite team, earning 22% of the vote for that particular question. The Bears earned 11% of the vote as the league’s least favorite team, and the Packers, Patriots, and Redskins tied for the country’s third least favorite team with 7% of the vote. Earlier this fall, Public Policy Polling released results of a similar survey that said that in the state of Wisconsin, star quarterback Aaron Rodgers was more popular than George Washington, Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King Jr., Santa Claus, Mahatma Ghandi, Nelson Mandela and Steve Jobs.
