Organizers of the Boston 2024 Olympic bid say they will only move forward if a majority of the public backs the idea. The group took out full-page newspaper ads Monday making that pledge.

The move follows a WBUR Poll out last week that found just 36 percent support the bid right now with 52 percent opposed.

Richard Davey, chief executive of Boston 2024, joined WBUR's Morning Edition.
