POLL: SAN DIEGANS ARE GOING TO LESS PRO GAMES THAN IN PAST
Published January 23, 1998
A new San Diego Union-Tribune/KNSD-NBC poll found that many locals are going to fewer pro games than they did five years ago, according Gordon Smith of the SAN DIEGO UNION- TRIBUNE. The poll, which surveyed 603 San Diego residents January 9-15, was conducted by CA-based Richard Hertz Consulting, and had a margin of error of +/- 4%. Among the results, 64% said there are "major benefits to having pro sports in San Diego," with women being "as emphatic about the benefits of pro sports as men;" 43% attend the same number of games as they did five years ago, but a "significant" 33% attend fewer games; 41% said their interest in sports is affected by player attitudes; and 51% said the city should share "at least" some of the costs of a new ballpark for the Padres, while 42% said the Padres should cover all costs. The Padres maintain "a strong positive image in the community," as 64% think they are good corporate citizens, compared with 51% who say the same about the Chargers. And 39% said the current Padres ownership "is doing a better job than the previous owners at making baseball good for San Diego" (UNION-TRIBUNE, 1/22).
