If you’ve said “DON’T CARE!” in reference to the 2011 World Series between the Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals, you’re far from alone.
Poll Position (it’s a survey company, not anything affiliated with strippers) conducted a national scientific telephone survey of 1,110 registered voters.
They simply asked the respondents are you interested in the 2011 World Series?
Of those polled, 55% said no, 36% said yes with 10% not having an opinion (which is another way of saying no). So I think we can drop that whole “national past time” nonsense; if only slightly more than a third of our nation actually cares.
Don’t get me wrong, I know all about the three kinds of lies: “lies, damn lies and statistics,” but there’s more.
The Fall Classic is not faring well along racial lines. Among whites, 57% said they have no interest in the World Series, 35% said they do have interest and 8% had no opinion. African-Americans weighed in with 54% saying they are not interested to 32% who are. Fourte
