If we look into the results of a recent player poll conducted by ESPN The Magazine, we learn that the typical baseball player is a homophobic Republican who believes that abortion is a sin worse than gambling but not as bad as smoking marijuana.
That’s probably an unfair exaggeration, but it does reflect the results of the recently released informal poll that samples a very small selection of Major League Baseball players (that surprisingly included more than just Chipper Jones) with the following questions:
Who do you want to win the election?
- 81.8% for Governor Mitt Romney;
- 13.6% undecided; and
- 4.6% of President Barack Obama.
Should the U.S. legalize gay marriage?
- 55% no; and
- 45% yes.
Are you pro-life or pro-choice?
- 65% pro-life; and
- 35% pro-choice.
Should the U.S. legalize marijuana?
- 65% no; and
- 35% yes.
Should the U.S. legalize sports gambling?
- 59.1% yes; and
- 40.9% no.
The results of the questionnaire are hilarious in the way that we laugh when we’re incredibly nervous. I’m just going to remain thankful that there were no questions about firearms.
