October 24/12 10:55 am - 60% of Americans Believe Armstrong Doping Allegations True


Posted by Editoress on 10/24/12
 

U.S. polling company Angus Reid has conducted a national online survey on Lance Armstrong and the findings by the United States Anti-doping Agency (USADA) regarding doping, and the stripping of Armstrong's Tour titles. The survey found that over half were following the story in the news, and that 60% believe the allegations of doping are true. Roughly half agree with the decision to strip Armstrong of his title.

The survey broke down responses by gender and by whether or not the respondent had worn a yellow Livestrong wristband, and found that those individuals who had worn a band were more likely to have followed news reports (71% versus 48% who hadn't worn the band). Livestrong band wearers were more definite in their feelings about the allegations, with 63% believing Armstrong doped (versus 59% of non-band wearers) and 23% believing the allegations were false (versus 13%). Band wearers were more likely to disagree with the decision to strip Armstrong of his titles (45% of wristband wearers disagree versus 31% on non-wearers).

Respondents were asked if they had a favourable or non-favourable opinion of 12 athletes and former athletes, with Armstrong second only to Tiger Woods in the unfavourable ranking (38% for Armstrong versus 42% for Woods). Armstrong and Woods were the two most recognized athletes on the list.
