Death knell for those pro Prayut political parties. Still not late to dump that albatross.

It's a NIDA poll so whatever it says is suspect. Even a stopped clock tells the right time occasionally.

 

The rule of thumb still applies - anything from NIDA is not to be relied upon.

The other half are probably Thai-Chinese, happy to return to motherland.

From the feed back from Thai's I've met,  they don't like the Junta,  everyone I spoke to hated them and the more North you went the hate got stronger.

 

How strange, I get the same comments about the Shin clan and their puppet parties. No one likes them either but the more North you go they more intimidated they feel.

 

And that's the sad part. Thais know what both lot are, but don't feel they can do anything to change it.

Eric, less than half felt they were not better off. You do realize less than half isn't the majority don't you?

Nonsense. There's no evidence at all of intimidation to vote for PTP or its equivalent.There may I agree be some social pressure as there is elsewhere in the country to think in the way one's community as a whole is leaning politically. But that would also be the case in Tunbridge Wells or Glasgow. Thailand has thank goodness secret ballots and voters can vote anyway they like.

 

But you are trying to conflate the general revulsion towards the Junta with the support of one of the most popular democratic based parties. You only betray your own prejudice. Maybe we should just let the Thai people decide.
