Poll: Americans Support Punishment for Steroid Use

Men are substantially more likely than women to be baseball fans -- 65 percent versus 51 percent. The number of baseball fans drops among people age 55 and up, and peaks among people in higher-income households.

In one attitudinal difference, fans -- perhaps not surprisingly -- are 14 points more apt than non-fans to say enforcement of steroid rules should be left to MLB, not taken over by the federal government.


This ABC News/ESPN poll was conducted by telephone March 11-15, 2005, among a random national sample of 1,019 adults. The results have a three-point error margin for the full population, and four points for baseball fans. Field work was done by ICR-International Communications Research of Media, Pa.
