59% Say Pete Rose Should Be in Hall of Fame

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

Most baseball fans nationwide believe Cincinnati Reds great Pete Rose deserves to be in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Fans aren’t so forgiving about players who abused steroids.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Americans adults who watch baseball at least once a week shows that 59% believe Rose deserves to be honored in Cooperstown. Twenty-nine percent (29%) don’t believe Rose, who was made permanently ineligible for induction in 1991, should be allowed in today. Another 12% are undecided.
