image00211

As of August, 2008, men were significantly more likely to approve of the 49ers moving to Santa Clara than were women. Though not a revelation, this is likely because men are more likely to attend. As other demographics from this series of surveys are posted, the “likelihood to attend” impact will become more clear.

Question: Do you approve or disapprove of the 49ers football team moving from the City of San Francisco to the City of Santa Clara?

This post is based on the latest survey with questions about the 49ers moving to Santa Clara.

The survey was conducted August 18-20, 2008 and consists of 400 telephone interviews of likely November 2008 Santa Clara County General Election voters. The margin of error at the sample median is 5%. A model of the sample population was used to insure a representative sample.

For the gender subsamples, the margin of error at the sample median is 7%. Therefore, the 8% gap in approval is statistically significant.
