Colin Kaepernick is the most disliked player in the NFL, according to a recent poll by E-Poll Marketing Research, which asked 1,100 people whose demographics were representative of the general population.
The poll revealed that Kaepernick was "disliked a lot" by 29 percent of those polled, more than any of the more than 350 players asked about in the survey.
After Kaepernick, the most disliked players were as follows: Jameis Winston (22 percent), Ndamukong Suh (21 percent), Tom Brady (13 percent) and Ben Roethlisberger (10 percent).
The last time the poll was taken, in August 2014, Kaepernick was only "disliked a lot" by 6 percent of the population.
While results of the poll show Kaepernick being more disliked by the general population, much of that has to do with the fact that African-Americans only make up 15 percent of the U.S. population. Kaepernick hasn't been standing during the national anthem to show his displeasure with the treatment of African-Americans by police officers.
Among African-Americans, Kaepernick has never been more popular. The poll shows 42 percent of African-Americans now say they like the 49ers quarterback "a lot," while only 2 percent dislike him "a lot."
