In CT, Yanks > Sox

Connecticut prefers the Yankees to the Red Sox.

According to an annual Connecticut Baseball Poll, conducted independently by Quinnipiac University, 43 percent of fans living in the state like the Yankees, while 38 percent like the Red Sox. It’s the fourth straight year of Yankee dominance in the state, the Poll said.

The Red Sox won the 65 and over category (46-34), the Yankees claimed every other age group.

The Mets got seven percent of the fan vote.

“The New York Yankees have topped the Boston Red Sox in every one of Quinnipiac University’s 10 annual polls of Connecticut baseball fans, except for a 41-40 percent split, tipping to the Red Sox, in 2008,” Quinnipiac Poll Director Douglas Schwartz said.

“The Yankees lead is due to their big advantage in Fairfield County. The Yankees continue to do better among younger fans, while the Red Sox are stronger among older fans.”

The poll, which was conducted from Apr. 18-23, surveyed 1,933 Connecticut adults with a margin of error of plus-or-minus 2.2 percentage points.
