The Quinnipiac Polling Institute released results on Americans' approval/disapproval rates on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem. Some 43 to 52 percent of American voters surveyed say that they disapprove of NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem. Although most voters surveyed said that they disapproved of the kneeling, 34 to 58 percent of voters say that Trump's comments on NFL protests were inappropriate. More details on the results can be found on the polling institute's website.
