(KCAU) – As COVID-19 cases stay on the rise, the second Nexstar Iowa 2020 Red America, Blue America (RABA) Research poll asked Iowans how they feel about going out to watch sports.

The results show that nearly 70 percent of Iowans are staying off the bleachers because of the pandemic.

Just under a quarter of those polled felt comfortable attending games, the remaining eight percent were unsure.

Both men and women are largely uncomfortable with the idea of going out to sporting events, but women are more likely to forgo kickoff by five points, but men are more comfortable attending games than women by a margin of nine percent.

Continuing from results about Iowans attending games, folks under 50 years old were more likely than their counterparts aged 50 or over to say yes by 17 points.

74 percent of Iowans 50 plus said they would not head to a stadium.

The second Nexstar Iowa 2020 RABA Research Poll was conducted from October 21-24, 2020 via a cell phone and landline survey. 693 Iowans were polled. The margin of error for the results is +/-4 percent.
