Should MLB Reinstate Pete Rose?

Cincinnati Reds great Pete Rose has formally asked new Commissioner Rob Manfred for reinstatement into Major League Baseball, and most baseball fans think that request should be granted.  They also feel even more strongly that Rose should be in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Baseball Fans think MLB should reinstate Rose, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Twenty-five percent (25%) disagree, while 15% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
