Many Americans are over the New England Patriots’ NFL dynasty.
In a survey by Public Policy Polling, the majority of Americans would like to see the Patriots lose the Super Bowl this weekend to the Atlanta Falcons.
According to the poll, 53 percent of Americans want to see the Falcons win on Sunday, while only 27 percent want the Patriots to win.
When it comes to the overall public attitude toward the Pats, 43 percent have a positive view of the team, while 42 percent have a negative view.
The Falcons have a 55 percent favorable view, compared to the 19 percent negative opinion.
New England also received the most votes for the most-hated team in the United States, with 21 percent. The Deflategate scandal is one of the main factors behind the Patriots’ most-hated status.
Interestingly enough, Tom Brady is considered America’s favorite quarterback, with 22 percent of the voting. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers comes in second with 16 percent in the poll.
