71% of Indians fans are confident in the direction of the team

29% of you probably aren’t that excited for this weekend

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Indians fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

After a tumble that lasted almost a month, confidence among Indians fans is on the rise, according to the latest polls from SB Nation’s FanPulse. Confidence sits at 71% among Tribe fans who responded to the survey, up from 66% a week ago. It’s still a stark contrast to the 100% approval rating of four weeks ago, but it’s a start.

I have a feeling that next week’s poll will be where most Indians fans’ confidence sits until the Indians are either eliminated from the playoffs, or win the whole dang thing. Sweeping the Twins will be a huge boon for good feelings, and getting swept could put us into Pittsburgh Pirates fan territory (currently 3% confidence).

Terry Francona’s approval rating took a small slip recently, dipping as low as 83% last week, but it’s up to 86% this week. Meanwhile, LGFT Mickey Callaway has seen his approval among Mets fans drop from 46% four weeks ago to 4% in this week’s poll.
