FOR RELEASE: JUNE 16, 2011
YANKEES TOP RED SOX AMONG CONNECTICUT FANS,QUINNIPIAC UNIVERSITY POLL FINDS
The New York Yankees top the Boston Red Sox 43 – 38 percent, their biggest lead since 2007, inthe Quinnipiac University poll’s annual Connecticut Pennant Race to determine who wins theheart of the state’s baseball fans.Another 7 percent of Connecticut fans like the Mets, with 1 percent support for other teams scattered like singles around the infield, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack)University poll finds. The survey was conducted among the 56 percent of Connecticut adults whosay they are “very interested” or “somewhat interested” in Major League Baseball.Men back the Yankees 47 – 35 percent while women go to the Red Sox 42 – 39 percent.The Bombers are strongest in Fairfield County, where they lead the Sox 57 – 16 percentwith 15 percent for the Mets. Tolland, New London and Windham Counties in easternConnecticut go to the Red Sox 67 – 27 percent, with 3 percent for the Mets.“Forget the AL East standings. The Yankees have topped the Red Sox in eight of our nine Connecticut Pennant Races,” said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz,PhD. “The gender gap, with men backing the Bombers and women backing the Red Sox, mightmake for some interesting family discussions – or dating dynamics.”“In 2003, our first poll, the Yankees led by 14 points. The Red Sox chipped away at thatlead until they took a statistically insignificant 1 point lead in 2008.”From June 8 – 13, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,456 Connecticut adults with amargin of error of +/- 2.6 percentage points. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.The Quinnipiac University Poll conducts public opinion surveys in New York, New Jersey,Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio and the nation as a public service and for research.
