The football-watching public agrees with SuperBowl analysts: The San Francisco 49ers should beat the Baltimore Ravens.
A game day poll from Rasmussen Reports finds that 48 percent of those planning to watch the game believe the 49ers will win, with 33 percent picking the Ravens. However, when it comes to who viewers want to win, the numbers were closer.
"The San Francisco 49ers were picked to win it all at the beginning of the season, and with kick off to Super Bowl XLVII just hours away, fans' views haven't changed," said Rasmussen.
From the pollster:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 48% of American Adults who plan to watch the Super Bowl think the 49ers are most likely to win this year, while 33% believe the Baltimore Ravens are most likely to be the champions. Nineteen percent (19%) are undecided.
When it comes to what team viewers want to win, however, they're more closely divided: 43% say the 'Niners, while 39% say the Ravens.
The survey of 1,058 Adults Who Will Watch the Super Bowl was conducted on January 26-29, 2013 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
