Wolves fans were ready for McHale to go

The Associated Press is reporting that after 15 years Kevin McHale's time with the Minnesota Timberwolves is up.

We did a statewide poll on this issue in Minnesota back in April, and found that only 46% of people describing themselves as fans of the team wanted to see McHale return as coach.

While this has reached resolution the main reason we were conducting the poll- to see what voters in the state thought about the Al Franken/Norm Coleman standoff- sure has not!

I'll be interested to see if fan reaction stories to McHale's departure reflect what we found scientifically- this is certainly a field where anecdotes and easily rigged media outlet website polls drive the conventional wisdom about public opinion a lot more often than formal surveys.
