Poll: 'I don't have a problem with it, but that guy over there would'
In a newly released study conducted by Harris Interactive/ Witeck-Combs, 72% of U.S. adults say they would not change their feelings toward a favorite male professional athlete if said athlete revealed himself to be gay. However, when asked how "other sports fans" would react to such a disclosure, 72% also thought that others would have a less favorable opinion than themselves.
Though considering that the poll didn't specify how many "other sports fan" one must take into consideration and that virtually everyone knows the name "Jerry Falwell"...
...who's really surprised by that last figure? Not us.
