According to the results, 23 percent of respondents said that the Cowboys were their least favorite NFL team. The only other team to get over 10 percent was the Chicago Bears, who were unpopular with 13 percent of respondents.
“In a time of unprecedented political division, there’s one thing Americans agree on across the board,” said Public Policy Polling president Dean Debnam. “The Cowboys aren’t America’s team -- in fact they’re America’s least favorite team.
Interestingly, the Cowboys, Bears, Patriots, Steelers and Giants were all high on the list of most-liked teams. But the No. 1 spot on that list currently goes to the Denver Broncos, who were liked by 14 percent of respondents.
One other surprising finding from the poll was the way that people feel about the Washington Redskins changing their name. Only 18 percent of respondents thought that the franchise should change its name and 71 percent of voters said the team should keep its name as is.
