  1. Excellent survey and analysis. A nationwide survey to find out the degree to which these findings were typical of nationwide feeling would be very useful, especially since the survey showed that most protesters were from Bangkok/the Central Region/the South, highly educated, and of high income.Is what the protesters want the same as what Thais as a whole want?
