    A new poll about the national anthem protests is out.

    FOX's Tom Rigatti has details:

    Most Americans think refusing to stand for the national anthem is disrespectful to the country, the military and the American flag. But most also disapprove of President Trump's calling for the firing of NFL players who refuse to stand in the Associated Press/NORC Survey. 

    Americans disapprove of the protests by a 52 to 31 percent margin. But the numbers are nearly identical when it comes to the President saying team owners should fire the protesting players with 55 percent disagreeing with Trump.

    After the President made his comments two weeks ago, hundreds of players took a knee, whereas before it had only been a handful.
