Flemington, NJ, December 14, 2007 – Results from a national study among 601 Americans revealed that more than half (59%) believe that the major league baseball players cited in the Mitchell Report should be punished for using performance enhancing drugs.
The study was conducted by HCD Research during December 13-14, to obtain Americans’ views of video clip in which former Senator George Mitchell highlights the results of his 20-month investigation of baseball's so-called “Steroids Era” during a press conference yesterday.
While viewing segments of the Mitchell video, participants indicated their levels of agreement by moving their mouse from left to right on a continuum. The responses were recorded in quarter-second intervals and reported in the form of curves. Participants were also asked pre- and post-viewing questions.
