61% Rooting for Rams, 69% Think Patriots Will Win

Two-thirds of American adults (66%) are at least somewhat likely to watch the Super Bowl a week from Sunday. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that 61% of them are rooting for the Los Angeles Rams but 69% expect the New England Patriots to win.

Half (51%) of those rooting for the Rams are actually rooting against the Patriots. Only 16% of Patriots fans are primarily rooting against the Rams (perhaps they are New Orleans Saints fans disgruntled with the blown call that kept their team out of the big game).

Fifty-three percent (53%) of potential viewers are primarily interested in the game while 32% are more interested in the commercials. Fifteen percent (15%) will tune in for the halftime show.

Sixty-five percent (65%) of men are primarily interested in the game along with 40% of women (see question wording and crosstab results).

Among those who follow NFL football on a regular basis, 42% believe Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time. Forty percent (40%) disagree and 18% are not sure. Younger fans are more likely to see Brady as the greatest ever
