Poll: majority do not want Redskins to change name

Posted: Updated:

It appears a majority of people in the Washington D.C. region do not want the Redskins to change their name.

According to a new Washington Post poll, sixty-one percent of adults in the area say they like the name.

Two-thirds say they should not change it and about eighty percent of Redskins fans want the name to stay.

The debate over the team's name has intensified in recent months

Some local and federal lawmakers and activists are lobbying to for a change because some view it as offensive to Native Americans.
