Yep, as expected. But hey, we're wrong :D (According to TRuFF)

Some other elements of this survey:

  • "Do you know that Paris is candidate to host the 2024 summer games?"

XVM83b74930-e9ec-11e6-9790-e668ca622fe5-805x453.jpg

Strange to see that 68% of Indians and 65% of Chinese know Paris is candidate while only 27% of Britains know it :blink:

  • "According to you, the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris is the assurance of having Olympic games ..."

"Open, focused on sharing" is ranked #8 in this survey.

Disappointingly low, but it's no surprise - this country tends to look across the Atlantic before looking across the Channel. I think you can be assured that we will be enthused by the prospect of another Olympics next door if you win though ;)

We really can't take the opinions of the Chinese and Indians too serious. They'll just be glad to be breathing clean air no matter what city would host

Only the U.S. favors L.A. But even there, it's by a slim margin. This is telling, cuz I believe this also reflects respectively within the IOC, too.

Yes. Not only that, but LA got a minority of the votes from les etats unis. (47%) Although I do not know if they were asked in English or French.

This comment seems to express the popular feeling in France, though:

How you know the french are against ?? because you read comments on articles about the games ?? you don't know that peoples against something are always the louder ones ? and your opinion is certainly as fake that this survey !! you proclam something without proofs !! Please don't make your opinion a general truth.

I'm french and i really want the games, and for what i see around me, it's 70/30 for the yes.

:lol: They're just jealous, cuz they were an Annecy 2018 bid fanatic & they lost big time. Now that Paris 2024 is so close, Tulsa is just bitter & tainted. So pay their sillyness no mind lol.

Fredericks steps down from IOC evaluation committee and he will also not cast a vote for the 2024 host. The French investigation threatens the Paris bid, especially if bribery is proven. 

https://www.google.com/amp/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN16E19C

but it gets worse. With bribery and ballooning costs, one name on the Paris team sticks out that could potentially connect Paris 2024 to the bribery troubles and ballooning costs in Tokyo. Etienne Thobois, a member of the Tokyo 2020 bid team who has gone on record stating that a bid he worked on always had an unacheivable, pie in the sky budget. 

I think Abrahamson is right, #shareparis is probably going to share more than just the good things, and with a powerful tool such as social media and the meat of a backlash already present, I won't be surprised if LA goes on to be the only city to make it to the finish line. With an election looming the government backed bid is likely to suffer the changing ideology of the government. These next few months are going to be pivotal for the Paris bid, and how it manages to navigate it.

Does anyone have any Paris-related thoughts to this Paris-related post here in the Paris thread?

I don't think there's any imminent danger of Paris dropping out of the race.  It goes without saying the political situation there is something worth watching and this news is notable, but I'd be very surprised if Paris fell out of the running for the final vote in September.

Please showcase to me an example where a far right government did not support their nation hosting the Olympics. Go on I dare you.

Even if Le Pen wins, Paris will stay in the running. Despite the investigation, Paris will probably still win.

What are the positions of the political parties and Presidential candidates with regard to Paris' bid? @Pure facts @neige @JO2024 @DamC ??

I seem to remember their previous bid enjoying cross party support. I certainly haven't heard of any serious political opposition being reported but sometimes things don't get picked up in English speaking media.

Everywhere in Europe nobody wants SoG or WoG, excepted in Paris ? I think not, people don't want SoG because is too expensive and people don't want pay for that. 
Why does Paris mayor refuse referendum if french are for ?

I agree; if anything a far-right government would be all about nationalism and promoting themselves, so I would think that hosting an Olympics would be a vehicle for that.

Give tRuff some props for finally posting outside of LA thread, even if it just ends as a classic trollism and alternative facts.

No, not at all.. he posted that in the LA thread.  I copied it here so it could be discussed in the proper location (less anyone wonders why the LA thread is the hot thread.. that's the reason why).
