In an interesting study released by Business Insider, a series of polls collected via SurveyMonkey could predict how fans of specific sports were most likely to vote.

The sports included range from national icons of NASCAR and MLB baseball to European Soccer and PGA Golf. The full results can be viewed below.

NASCAR: 27% in favour of Trump
PGA tour golf: 9% in favour of Trump
NHL hockey: 2% in favour of Trump
NFL or College Football: 1% in favour of Trump
MLB baseball: 4% in favour of Biden
MLS or European soccer: 11% in favour of Biden
NBA or College Basketball: 17% in favour of Biden

There are a few things we can take away from these results. For starters, it seems that NFL or College Football fans had the most balanced voting patterns, leaning in Trump's favour by a minuscule 1%.

The sport most likely to want a Democratic president would be NBA or College Basketball, with a 17% lead in Biden’s favour. On the other hand, the sport with the biggest Trump-based support would have to be NASCAR, with a dominant 27% pull in Trump’s direction.

Full statistics, as well as an in-depth analysis, is available here.
