    More than 90 percent of PyeongChang residents consistently support their city's bid. But Salzburg numbers are weak; an IOC poll shows only 42 percent support for the Winter Games in the city. The IOC and each bid committee commissioned separate polls in the bid cities in the last quarter of 2006.
