The survey, taken April 7-8, among 1,000 likely U.S. voters, asked respondents if they believed it was a “good idea or a bad idea” for the MLB to move the All-Star game and Draft to Denver following the passage of the Peach State’s election law, which, despite popular belief, expands voting in some areas.
While a plurality of respondents across the board, 44 percent, said it was a bad idea, 40 percent said it was a good idea, and 16 percent said they remain unsure. A majority of Democrats, however, 60 percent, said the decision was a good idea compared to 62 percent of Republicans who said the opposite. Fifty-one percent of those unaffiliated with either major political party deemed the MLB’s decision “bad.”
