The results from the sixth installment of FanPulse are in, and Mets fans’ confidence in the direction of the team dropped once again, while Mickey Callaway’s approval rating remained low but steady.
On the “confidence in the direction of the team” front, just 56 percent of respondents said they are confident. That’s a new low this year and a massive drop from the 90+ percent rates from the first three weeks of the season.
Callaway seems to have settled in to his approval rating, which came in at 41 percent this week. After a quick drop from his 75 percent approval rating in the first poll, he’s been between 38 and 41 percent in each of the past four polls.
Looking around the division, Marlins fans appear to be experiencing Stockholm Syndrome, as 74 percent of them say they’re confident in the direction of their team. Braves fans plummeted to just 58 percent, while just 37 percent of Nationals fans said they’re confident. And last but not least, Phillies fans remained Phillies fans, with 94 percent expressing confidence after 100 percent of them were confident in each of the first four polls before that rate dipped to 86 percent last week.
And nationally, the poll asked fans to predict Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s WAR this year. A plurality of fans voted for less than 5 WAR, while 5-to-7 WAR was a close second.
