National Survey of 800 Adults
Conducted May 12-13,
By Rasmussen Reports
1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about the New England Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady – very closely, somewhat closely, not very closely or not at all?
2* Do you have a very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable or very unfavorable impression of Tom Brady?
3* The National Football League has concluded that Brady was aware of footballs being illegally deflated during a major championship game earlier this year that may have given his team a competitive edge. He has been suspended for the first four games of next season, and the Patriots hit with a $1 million fine and the loss of two draft picks. Are these penalties too harsh or not harsh enough? Or are they about right?
4* Should the New England Patriots be forced to forfeit their recent Super Bowl win?
5* In a typical week, how often do you follow professional football on television, in person, on the radio or online – rarely or never, occasionally, at least once a week or more than once a week?
