As a fan of the NFL, I have never heard of something so ludicrous. A team's fans usually consist of people with ties to an area, and on the off chance that there are no ties, there is a connection to that team at some point, be it a favorite player or they liked the colors as a kid or a parent who liked them. The fact that more Republicans are rooting for the 49ers is probably just coincidence. Especially when you consider that California, one of the biggest states in America, is a mainly Democratic state. Wouldn't you think that, with that being said, more Democrats would be rooting for the 49ers? Also, the 49ers have been in existence a lot longer than the Ravens, so maybe that explains why more people in general are rooting for them.
