But Russia? Nothing about that sounds like a tourist destination.I'm adventurous, sure, and like to explore new places, but I want to know with relative certainty that I'll make it home alive. If I'm gonna drop a pretty penny to go to the Olympics, I want to experience a little more of the region too. Nothing about Sochi, Russia sounds appealing.
I'm not surprised that attendance is down, but this might be the real reason people stay home.
More than half of Americans think a terrorist attack on the Games is likely, a poll shows. The results of the CNN/ORC poll come a day after U.S. officials said they had specific reasons to worry about security in Russia. Games was likely. Of those surveyed for the CNN/ORC poll, 57% said a trrorist attack on the Sochi Games was likely.
That poll is saying that a terrorist attack isn't just possible. But likely. I feel the same way but boy, do I hope I'm wrong.
