America’s Team? World Series rooting interest is overwhelmingly in favor of the Philadelphia Phillies
According to BetOnline.ag, a whopping 88% of America is rooting for the Philadelphia Phillies during the 2022 World Series against the Houston Astros.
88% of America wants the Phillies to Win the World Series
- Phillies: 44 States
- Astros: 6 States
The data was collected based on Geotagged Twitter Data and Fan Hashtags. Honestly, it’s great seeing a massive red wave with a gigantic Phillies “P” smack-dab in the middle of the map. Still, it should be so much more. Shame on New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
There is absolutely zero reason for any state outside of Texas to be rooting for the Houston Astros so I’m going to have to chalk that up to the fact that you don’t use Twitter that much, rendering your state and your place in this chart, useless.
