Nike’s Colin Kaepernick Ad Earns Wide Approval From Younger Millennials

Nike’s Colin Kaepernick Ad Earns Wide Approval From Younger Millennials

The Oregon-based sportswear and apparel company introduced Kaepernick as one of the faces of Nike's 30th anniversary of the "Just Do It" campaign in a commercial featuring the words, "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything".

"What was Nike thinking?"

President Trump fanned the flames of the controversy past year during a campaign speech for then Alabama Senator Luther Strange.

Women agree by 67-31 percent.

Although the campaign sparked protests among some consumers and the company's stock price initially dipped, it has since rebounded.

By the end of business on Wednesday, Nike would close at $83 a share, an all-time high for the company.

Kaepernick, who is now an unsigned free agent, started sitting and kneeling during the national anthem in 2016, calling it a protest against racial injustice and police brutality.

The new ad sparked anger among conservatives, including President Donald Trump, who said the endorsement deal sends "a bad message" and talk of boycotts across the country.

"Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts", Trump wrote last week, and video clips of people destroying Nike products quickly went viral. I wonder if they had any idea that it would be this way? In the poll, 21 percent of respondents declared they'll stop making Nike purchases. "There's no reason for it". Rovell notes that Kaepernick originally signed with Nike in 2011 and he has remained on their roster since, despite being out of the National Football League and not appearing in any campaigns over the last two years.

Rasmussen Reports is a media company specializing in the collection, publication and distribution of public opinion information.

Quinnipiac University on Thursday released a poll of over 1,000 US voters nationwide, asking participants whether they approve or disapprove of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem before games.

The poll also reflects a deep divide over Kaepernick along familiar political lines, with 74% of Republicans opposed to the ad, while 64% of Democrats backed it. 42% of independent voters opposed it.
