According to recent research by Public Policy Polling, more Pennsylvania voters, 51%, say theyâ€™re Pittsburgh Steelers fans than Philadelphia EaglesÂ fans (29%).Â African Americans prefer the Eagles 47-38, but beyond that every group Public Policy Polling tracked by ideology, gender, party, race, and age sides with the Steelers.
Republicans choose the Steelers over the Eagles 55-25, whileÂ Democrats are more split but still choose the Steelers 51-32.
Steelers fans love the jobÂ Mike Tomlin is doing as head coach, approving of his job performance 75-10. EaglesÂ fans are less happy about the job Andy Reid is doing after the Eagles underperformed lastÂ season, with 40% approving and 34% disapproving.
Probably not a surprise to most of us, but interesting bit of research.
