Poll: Americans Don't Want Name Change

Posted Jan 2, 2014

A poll released today by the national polling firm Public Policy Polling showed 71 percent of nationwide voters do not want to see the Washington Redskins' name changed.

A poll released today by the national polling firm Public Policy Polling showed the following results among registered voters nationwide:

Do you think the Washington Redskins should change their nickname, or not?

Do ................................................................... 18%

Do not ............................................................. 71%

Not sure .......................................................... 11%

.

The poll also showed that regardless of race, gender, age or political affiliation, not one subgroup supported changing the team’s name.

The Redskins issued the following statement in response to the poll:

“This poll, along with the poll taken among Native Americans by the Annenberg Institute, demonstrates continued, widespread and deep opposition to the Redskins changing our name. The results of this poll are solidly in line with the message we have heard from fans and Native Americans for months – our name represents a tradition, passion and heritage that honors Native Americans. We respect the point of view of the small number of people who seek a name change, but it is important to recognize very few people agree with the case they are making.

“We are proud of the support our name has across the nation and we will continue to do everything we can to honor the great heritage that our name represents.”
