But that’s not the case. It almost is but not quite.
Oregonians instead have embraced another team from a distant state.
When Public Policy Polling (PPP) asked Oregon residents to name their NFL favorite team, 16% of them picked the Green Bay Packers, edging out the Seahawks, who received 15% of the vote.
Using automated telephone interviews, PPP surveyed 686 Oregon voters from June 21-24. The margin of error is + / -3.7%.
The poll framed the question this way: “Is your favorite NFL team the Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, or someone else?”
A total of 34% of the respondents chose “someone else” or said they don’t have a favorite team.
The percentages for the specific teams were:
