Men would rather see favorite team win Super Bowl than candidate win election

In a phone survey of 712 adults, 28 percent of guys admitted to caring more about the big game than the next leader of the free world, according to a press release from Seton Hall Sports Polls.

Women, by contrast, tackled the question with more of a world view — with only 11 percent saying they’d rather their team score a championship.

“It shouldn’t be a surprise that that many men care more about the outcome of a baseball or a football season than the political future of the country — but it is alarming,” said Rick Gentile, director of Seton Hall Sports Polls.
