Asked about their confidence in the team and their approval of Mickey Callaway’s job as manager, Mets fans polled in this week’s edition of FanPulse expressed slightly more optimism than they did last week. Confidence in the direction of the team came in at 39 percent, up from 21 percent last week, and approval of Callaway’s performance came in at 14 percent, a very slight increase from last week’s 10 percent.
Things have gone relatively well lately for the Mets, as they’ve won five of their last seven games, taking two of three from both the Giants and the Rockies before splitting the Tuesday doubleheader with the Yankees.
For the sake of comparison, Phillies fans lead the National League East in confidence in the direction of their team this week at 92 percent. Braves fans weren’t far behind at 90 percent, and 81 percent of Marlins fans polled expressed confidence in the direction of their team—somehow. Nationals fans came in at 56 percent, leaving the aforementioned 39 percent confidence rating of Mets fans as the lowest mark in the division.
On the national level, fans were asked whether or not they approved of the job Rob Manfred is doing as commissioner, and 52 percent of fans said no.
