Study: Most NFL fans vote for Republicans more often than they say they do

That’s because there’s a gap between their political self-image and how they actually vote. By and large, most NFL fans pull the lever for Republicans more often than they say they do—including most fans of “Democratic” teams. In fact, the fan bases of 23 teams show a propensity to vote more Republican than they claim, versus only six teams’ fans who vote more Democratic…

Tennessee Titans fans may be the oddest ones of all. Ask them what party they belong to, and Titans fans will collectively claim to be Democrats, by a margin of about 5 points. And yet, when those same fans show up to vote on Election Day, they end up supporting Republicans by just about the same margin—5 points.
