National Survey of 1,000 Adults

Conducted September 10-11, 2014

By Rasmussen Reports

1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about a professional football player and domestic violence?

2* Do you have a very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable or very unfavorable impression of Ray Rice?  

3* Do you have a very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable or very unfavorable impression of the National Football League?  

4* Now that the NFL has a video of Rice knocking out his fiancée with a punch, should he be banned from professional football?

5* Even before the video surfaced, the NFL issued new penalties for players who are involved in domestic violence.  For the first offense the player would be suspended for 6 games.  Upon a second offense the player would face a possible lifetime ban from the game.  Are these new penalties too harsh or not harsh enough?

6* Are professional athletes good role models for young children?

7* Do celebrities get preferential treatment when they break the law?

8* Do Americans pay too much attention to celebrity news and not enough attention to news that has real impact on their lives?

9* Does the media cover celebrities too much, too little or is the coverage about right?
