Patriots' association with Donald Trump doesn't concern most New England fans (Shutdown Corner)

When it comes to the New England Patriots, fandom trumps Trump. In a recent survey conducted by B2B and Yahoo Sports, Patriots fans indicated that the close relationship between President Donald Trump and several prominent members of the New England organization—owner Robert Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick, and quarterback Tom Brady—has little impact on their feelings about the Patriots. Only 22 percent of respondents indicated that Trump’s close association with the Patriots negatively impacted their feelings about the team, while one-third indicated the president made Patriots fans feel even better about the Patriots, which doesn’t seem possible.
