It's an argument for bars and living rooms all across the nation. But, when it comes to America's favorite sport, football wins. Over one-third of adults who follow at least one sport (34%) say professional football is their favorite sport while just 16% say baseball is their favorite. The gap between the two sports has narrowed from 2011 to 2012 - in 2011, 36% said pro football was their favorite while 13% said baseball was their favorite sport. These are some of the results of The Harris Poll of 2,176 adults surveyed online between December 12 and 18, 2012 by Harris Interactive. Looking at how other sports fared, just over one in ten sports fans (11%) say college football is their favorite sport while 8% say it is auto racing, 7% say men's professional basketball, and 5% say hockey. All other sports are favorites for 3% or less of sports fans.
