Study Shows That If You Like Sports, You're More Likely A Republican

Something I've learned from my years working in the sporting corner of the internet is that you should never mix politics with sports. People get very, very upset about this. So we'll just present the results of this study by GOP firm National Media Inc. for entertainment purposes only, and without comment (although feel free to share you thoughts below). What they found, in part, after surveying 218,000 Americans:

↵
    ↵
  • PGA fans are the most Republican and the most likely to vote
  • ↵
  • All major sports draw more Republican fans, except the NBA, which skews way left
  • ↵
  • NBA fans also least likely to vote of the major sports
  • ↵
  • NCAA Football fans are most Republican of the major sports
  • ↵
  • WNBA fans are the furtherest to the left
  • ↵
  • MLB is the most politically neutral of the major sports
  • ↵
