Football: America’s Favorite Sport

Earlier this year, a Harris Poll announced that football retains its long-time status as America’s favorite sport.

In 1985, professional baseball was only marginally behind football, as 23 percent of sports fans named it as their favorite sport, to college football’s 24 percent. Now, football holds an 18-percentage point lead, with 33 percent choosing pro football as their favorite sport and 15 percent selecting baseball.
