One e-discussion/poll in 2004 clearly shows the margin between those who favor the direct rule of the king and those who don’t:
Others (Errors/Out of Topic/Not sure/Repeated Posting):13.80%
The percentage has been deducted from total of 210 postings.
The URL of the discussion board is http://www.nepalpoll.com.np/news/npoll_mk/newResponse.asp?id=206&state=0
I took several hours reading each and every posting carefully and recording if they were in favor or against the direct rule of the king.
