A new poll finds that most Americans don’t support the woke political reason that Major League Baseball moved its All-Star Game out of Georgia.
After the All-Star Game was moved out of Atlanta over the state’s new election integrity law, the conservative news outlet the Daily Wire conducted a survey — and NOT of its own website members — to see how Americans view the issue. The site interviewed 1,026 Americans broken down into 31% Republican, 34% Democrat, and 35% Independent.
“The findings are fascinating,” the site reported.
According to the poll results, MLB’s political activism is alienating fans. 64% of Americans — including a majority of MLB fans, Delta Air Line customers, and Coca-Cola consumers — told the researchers they are less likely to support companies and organizations that insert themselves into political issues and debates.take our poll - story continues below
70% of all respondents agree with the statement: “Corporations and sports teams should generally stay out of politics.”
Another interesting finding of the poll is that, despite an avalanche of negative media coverage, key provisions of Georgia’s new election law are actually popular. 78% of respondents, including a majority of Democrats, MLB fans, non-white Americans, and all age groups, support the law’s ID requirement for absentee voting. 63% of respondents, including a majority of non-whites, and 48% of Democrats, support Georgia’s law restrictions on the handing out of gifts, including refreshments, to voters near polling stations and voting lines. Meanwhile, 67% of respondents, including a majority of Democrats and non-whites, support Georgia’s new policies regulating ballot drop boxes.
Support for Georgia’s law also grew after news finally began leaking out showing what is in the law: “Initially, 42% of Americans said they were supportive of the law and 38% opposed it. After learning about the legislation, 71% said they were “more supportive” of the Georgia law.”
Americans are starting to see that the left is lying to them nearly about everything and they are getting sick and tired of corporations and sports leagues arrogantly telling America what laws they should pass, how they should vote, and who they should and should not support.
The backlash is coming. Is corporate America ready?
