It’s that time again. The 2012 Summer Olympics are upon us, and if you live in London you might be feeling as though that metaphor is literal right about now, as the weight of thousands of visitors presses down on you in the crowded streets and throughout the Underground.
To learn more about the British reaction to all of the Olympic hustle and bustle, we surveyed scores of Brits to hear what they had to say about the myriad of social and economic impacts they expect to see as a result of the Games. We learned that men are more likely to be antipathetic about the Olympics than women, that the vast majority of Brits will be tuning in to watch the events on TV from the comfort of their homes, and that most Londoners are excited about the boost for local business.
