The rules are simple. On a scale of 0 to 10, 0 being no confidence at all, 10 being absolute confidence, How confident are you in the San Diego Padres organization?
"Confidence" is just about anything you want to interpret it as. The front office, the future prospects, the play on the field, the park, etc etc etc.
You know what would be great is if the Fan Confidence Poll somehow was able to predict like TV ratings or ticket sales or something. Unfortunately, I think we've got an unrepresentative sample. Crazies and what not.
