America has spoken, and it wants the Patriots to lose the Super Bowl


The New England Patriots have lost the popular vote. And there is no Electoral College.

According to a Public Policy Polling report released Monday, 53 percent of the U.S. is rooting for the Atlanta Falcons to beat the Patriots in Super Bowl LI. 27 percent are rooting for the Patriots, and the other 20 percent are presumably rooting just for good food and funny commercials. 

But 52 percent think the Patriots will win anyway, compared to 36 percent who believe in the Falcons.

There is also the perception that the Patriots are the 'evil empire,' akin to the Yankees and Duke.

Political affiliations didn't affect the results. 58 percent of Republicans wanted the Falcons to win, along with 54 percent of Democrats and 47 percent of independent voters.

The Patriots are the NFL's most hated team, with 21 percent of those surveyed calling them their least favorite team.

Who you got for the Super Bowl?
