New Yahoo polling reveals that more than a third of Americans have changed their sports viewing practices in response to the growing association between major American sports leagues and social justice-left wing politics.
45.5% of Americans overall have changed their sports following the second half of 2020, which saw the NBA, NFL, and MLB overtly promote the Black Lives Matter street terror movement. Of those, 34% are watching less sports, with only 11% opting to watch more. The Yahoo poll querying sports following questioned 1,606 Americans in late March. Poll respondents were asked “How has the discussion of politics in sports on social media impacted your viewing habits?”
