SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WWLP) – People living in the Boston don’t seem to be convinced Massachusetts is the right place for the 2024 Olympics.

The latest public opinion poll shows more than half of Boston residents, are opposed, while 40 percent are in favor.

22News spoke with a boy who plans to graduate college in 2024. He said he hopes to work in Boston, but the Olympics could make that difficult.

“I’ll be looking for a job in Boston and it most likely will be full of traffic and crowded and it’ll be impossible to get to work, so it probably wouldn’t be a good idea to bring it to Boston,” says Danny Pleach of Raynham.

Although a majority of Massachusetts residents polled are against Boston hosting the 2024 games, the poll showed a significant number might be willing to change their minds.
