LEWISBURG — In a tumultuous time for college athletics, a recent Bucknell Institute for Public Policy (BIPP) national survey noted that a majority of Americans support paying collegiate athletes, but significant gaps break by political party, age and gender lines.

The national survey, administered by YouGov for BIPP’s Survey Research Laboratory from Oct. 20 through Oct. 26, found 47% of Americans support the recently passed Fair Pay for Play Act in California, while only 20% oppose the measure. However, 62% of Democrats support the bill compared to 34% of Republicans, 56% of respondents under 30 years old support the bill, compared to 39% of those over 50 years, and 53% of men support the measure, compared to 42% of women.
