America is rooting for the Redskins

The Dallas Cowboys are great for television ratings, but that doesn’t mean everyone is a Cowboys fan. This ESPN.com poll — which is admittedly unscientific, but which has garnered nearly 200,000 votes — indicates quite strongly that America is on the side of the Redskins on Sunday night.

As you can see, 73 percent of voters would like to see the Redskins win, and only in Texas do a majority of voters favor the Cowboys.

Of course, the Cowboys hate seems even stronger away from the DMV, where many deranged weirdos (including my daughter’s kindergarten teaching assistant) grow up rooting for the Cowboys. Maryland (78 percent Redskins), Virginia (77 percent) and D.C. (76 percent) trail places like Michigan (82 percent Redskins), Pennsylvania (82), New Hampshire (82), Vermont (82), Massachusetts (82), Maine (81), Wisconsin (80) and Minnesota (80) in right-mindedness.
