Yeah, polls are always pretty small sample size. Which is why they're often off and why they usally come with a disclaimer saying that the results may vary by 3-5%. The thing that shows more is probably ratings.
Superbowl- not sure but I guess it's in the 90Mil range
World Series- averaged 28Mil viewers
NBA Finals- averaged 22Mil viewers (likely up b/c Miami was in)
NHL Finals- averaged 5-6Mil viewers (and that's with most of boston watching)
