TBILISI, Georgia – An unofficial street poll conducted Tuesday showed the mood on the street on the eve of Georgia’s second large demonstration against President Mikael Saakashvili in six months:

Though 63 percent of the 227 people interviewed said they though Saakashvili should resign, only 39 percent of them planned to attend the protest.

The study was conducted in more than 15 different neighborhoods in Tbilisi by journalism students from the Georgian Institute of Public Affairs (GIPA), in Tbilisi. 

Respondents were asked if they planned to attend the protests (and if not, did they support the protesters) and if they thought Sakaashvili should resign. They were also asked to rank satisfaction with his leadership, ranking him between 1 and 5 (one for the least satisfaction, and five for the highest satisfaction).
