Opinion is split over the value of 2012 Olympic Games for Britain

The IPA's TouchPoints survey canvassed a cross-section of people on whether they thought the London Olympics in 2012 would be good for Britain.

Of those, 19.2% of respondents were Londoners and only 55% agreed or tended to agree with the statement, an index of just 94.5. This compares to 60% of people from the rest of the country, making a much stronger index of 101.4.

Respondents in the social grade C2DE did not have particularly high expectations, with only 57% agreeing with the statement compared to 62% of ABC1 respondents.

People aged 55 and over were the least keen, with just 53% of people agreeing with the statement.
