Obviously, they are split. But here's today's evidence that massive numbers of them support the government:

The video calls the rally one million. Yes, by all means let's have an argument about the number, I'm sure we can all judge with high accuracy how many were there. Sky and BBC says "tens of thousands," which by U.S. antiwar rally corporate reporting standards, means hundreds of thousands. CNN, hewing closer to the imperialist line and doing a better job of downplaying the rally, merely calls it "large."
