Poll: Nearly three in four qathet region respondents show no interest in watching the Olympics

Results indicate Tokyo games are failing to grasp local interest

The Peak polled 366 readers and asked the question: How much coverage of the Olympic Games in Tokyo will you be watching?

The poll ran from 7/20/2021 to 7/26/2021. Of the 366 votes, we can determine that 181 are from within the qathet region. The full results are as follows:

As many events as possible 6.01 % total, 8.29 % local    
Everything involving Canada 4.37 % total, 3.87 % local    
Specific sports only 14.48 % total, 17.13 % local    
None 75.14 % total, 70.72 % local    
  Local   Total

This result provides for a 95% confidence level +/- 5.05% margin of error in the local community.

The Peak uses a variety of techniques to capture data, detect and prevent fraudulent votes, detect and prevent robots, and filter out non-local and duplicate votes.
