Weird. I don't like football but if I had a preference I would probably say Ravens just because Baltimore would seem to me to benefit from a win more, and Baltimore feels like an underdog city compared to S.F.

(CNN) - Do you plan to watch the Superbowl with Democrats or Republicans?

A new poll found a partisan divide among fans of the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens.

The survey from Clarus Research group found Republicans are partial to the 49ers, 43% to 26%, while Democrats leaned towards the Ravens 39% to 33%.

Independents were truly divided: 29% said they would support San Francisco and 28% indicated they'd back Baltimore.

The poll also indicated a predictable regional division - those in the Northeast generally favored the Ravens and those in West were fans of San Francisco.

Overall, 35% of adults in the U.S preferred the 49ers and 31% backed the Ravens.

    I had no opinion until the 49ers declared themselves homophobes.

    I'll be writing posts at TPC and ignoring the game. I may tune in for a few commercials. Football R Not Us.
