New Jersey's NFL Football Fans: Only 9 Percent Root for the Jets

New Jersey's NFL Football Fans: Only 9 Percent Root for the Jets
BY ALYSSA ADLER
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie is among the 8 percent of Garden State football fans who list the Dallas Cowboys as their favorite team, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Jets support is 9 percent, virtually no different.

A total of 56 percent of New Jersey adults are “very interested” or “somewhat interested” in the National Football League.

The Giants win the hearts of 36 percent of those NFL fans, followed by 17 percent who fly with the Eagles, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.

Only 13 percent of adults think less of Christie because he is a Cowboys fan while 3 percent view him more favorably and 83 percent of adults say it makes no difference.

The controversy over the governor’s trip to Dallas, paid for by Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, is politically motivated, 70 percent of adults say, while 11 percent say it is a serious issue.
