BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Who do NASCAR fans want to be the next President of the United States?
Donald Trump, according to a new poll released this week. 44% of the 1572 fans chose Trump, with Hillary Clinton 2nd at 10%. Here's a breakdown of the top choices in each party among the NASCAR fans surveyed:
The poll was commissioned by RacingUSA.com, a website whose president is Jefferson County Commissioner David Carrington.
In a news release accompanying the poll results, Carrington said "It's obvious that Mr. Trump's "Make America Great Again" theme is resonating with NASCAR fans, who collectively are some of the most patriotic voters in the United States. Not only did Trump do well with Republicans at 50.8%, he also showed strength with Independents at 49.0% and Democrats at 19.8%.
If Trump is not the Republican nominee, this poll indicates that he has enough support, at least among NASCAR fans, to run a viable campaign as an Independent."
