64% say NFL players should stand for the flag.
Most Americans stand with President Donald Trump and his criticism of the NFL for allowing protests, a study reveals.
Some 64 percent of Americans believe NFL players should stand and be respectful during the playing of the national anthem, according to a survey of 1,633 respondents conducted by Remington Research Group on Sept. 25.
A little more than half (51 percent) said they are watching less football this season than in years past. Of those, 69 percent cited players using the field as a political stage for their lack of interest.
While almost two-thirds of the respondents said players should stand and be respectful during the anthem, 24 percent said they did not have to. Twelve percent were unsure.
