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

SB Nation’s weekly FanPulse survey was distributed and we have the results. As the Dodgers kept winning, the fans’ confidence in the team kept increasing.

On Opening Day, just over three quarters of fans were happy with the way things were going, increasing to 88 percent of fans after one week. On Apr. 8, a whopping 98 percent of fans were confident in the direction of the team. This may be because of their incredible start, scoring 84 runs in their first 10 games.

But, oh, how the Dodgers did not follow through.

Since the survey results have been collected, the Dodgers have been swept by the St. Louis Cardinals. At one point in the series, LA was held scoreless for 18 innings. It will be interesting to see how the numbers change next week.

The survey also asked participants if reliever Joe Kelly would find his groove in the month of April and 82 percent of fans voted yes. Additionally, 95 percent of respondents said they were pleased with the way Roberts is running the ship.

On another note, a bonus question was added to this week’s survey, asking fans if they approve of the infamous bat flip.

More than two thirds of fans from all over the country are in favor of bat flips, while nearly 30 percent would rather not let the kids play.
