Sports Popularity Poll

Some interesting trends in a Harris Poll on sports American’s follow. Here are the relevant numbers regarding soccer:

  • The percentage of adults who say soccer is ther favorite sport is pretty much unchanged since 1985 at 3%
  • The percentage of adults who follow soccer is at 15% for 2003 after hitting 18% in 2002 although the drop is not statistically significant.
  • There was a dip in adults who follow soccer in the early 90s, hitting a low of 8% in 1992.

At DC United games in seasons past, I’ve filled out a number of similar surveys. Does anyone know if those results are available anywhere?
