In a recent survey of registered voters by Public Policy Polling, 55% of Americans consider themselves fans of the NFL, the only sport to receive support from more than half of those surveyed.
The NFL was followed by Major League Baseball at 42% and the NBA at 36%.
Interestingly, in what may be a bad sign for the NFL, its fan base appears to be getting older. Of the respondents 45 or older, 60% are fans of the NFL, while only 48% of those under 45 consider themselves fans.
