Washington_Redskins_Logo_2013 [2]Oneida Indian Nation has released a poll that supports, in various ways, a change of the team’s name.

The poll of 500 adults in the Washington, D.C. region found that 59 percent believe Native Americans would have a right to feel offended if called “redskins.”

Also, 55 percent said a name change would not affect their support for the team. Twenty-five percent said it would decrease their support, while 18 percent said a new name would actually increase the support.

In other words, for 73 percent of the respondents, their support for the team post-name change would either be the same or higher.
