Poll: Most Redskins Fans Would Stay Loyal After Name Change

The Oneida Indian Nation commissioned a poll slated for release today that surveys DC-area adults' attitudes about a possible Redskins name change. The poll shows that if the team were renamed, 55% said that it "would not affect their support," while 25% said that it "would lessen their support and 18% said it would increase it." Among those who identified as Redskins fans, 46% said that a name change "would not lessen their support," while 30% said that it "would make them less of a fan and 23% said it would make them more of a fan." The poll of 500 adults was conducted by SurveyUSA (USA TODAY, 10/16).
