Poll: 58 Percent Say Professional Athletes Should Be Required to Stand During National Anthem

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that Americans overwhelmingly support requiring professional athletes to stand during the National Anthem. Fifty-eight percent say that athletes “should be required to stand” during the National Anthem. Thirty-three percent disagreed, and nine percent of respondents said they didn’t know. On Tuesday, President Donald Trump proposed that the NFL set a rule forbidding athletes to kneel during the National Anthem. Despite their support for the National Anthem, a majority of respondents supported allowing athletes to express political views at sporting events. Forty-nine percent supported it, while only 33 percent disagreed. (Seven percent didn’t know.) The numbers show, however, that a majority of Americans opposed ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s protest during the National Anthem. Fifty-one percent opposed Kaepernick’s protest, while only 40 percent supported it. (Nine percent said they didn’t know.) The NFL is also getting poor marks for their handling of the issue. Forty-three percent of Americans polled in the survey said that they disapproved of the NFL’s handling of the issue while only 36 percent approved.

And these are polling numbers after folks have been subjected to non-stop support of these kneeling tools by the dominantly liberal mainstream media, and condemnation of Trump.  Here at The Daily Buzz we support President Trump’s call (NOT order or directive) to the NFL to require players to stand respectfully during the playing of the National Anthem.  It’s way past time that someone in a position of influence called out those loser players for their nauseating disrespect.  That’s what our President did, and we applaud it..and agree with the majority here who were polled.
