How ACC fans break down by party

Is it true that Carolina folks are more Democratic than Duke and State ones?

Our latest poll would indicate yes.

Among respondents describing themselves as UNC fans, 55% are Democrats, 30% are Republicans, and 15% are independents.

Duke fans are 46% Democrats, 40% Republicans, and 15% independents.

State fans are 46% Democrats, 43% Republicans, and 11% independents.

It's interesting to note that there are a lot more political independents among respondents who do not express loyalty to any of the teams- 21%. Maybe those are less partisan about sports are less partisan about politics or vice versa.
