Our new poll for WBUR was released this morning. It was conducted among 507 registered voters inside of Route 128, with an oversample in the City of Boston.

From WBUR:

 A new WBUR poll shows that although a majority of Bostonians support a 2024 Olympic bid, an overwhelming number of residents want a referendum on the issue.

Three-quarters of poll respondents said residents in Boston and surrounding towns should vote on whether to host the 2024 Summer Games.

“People want the ability to have a say, and that goes even for supporters; they want the ability to vote,” said Steve Koczela with The MassINC Polling Group, which conducted this survey for WBUR.
