A new Rasmussen Reports phone and online survey revealed less than a quarter of American adults support changing the names of the Atlanta Braves and the Super Bowl-bound Kansas City Chiefs.

Just 23 percent of adults said the Chiefs should change their name. Sixty percent said they should not.

The opposition is even higher for the Braves — 63 percent oppose a potential name change for the Atlanta baseball team. Twenty-two percent support changing the name.

Rasmussen Reports showed that opposition to changing the names is the majority belief in almost every demographic.

Democrats are more evenly divided. Eighty-one percent of Republicans oppose renaming the Chiefs and 85 percent oppose renaming the Braves. Unaffiliated voters oppose renaming them by about a 3-to-1 margin.
