In an effort to gauge the mood around the country, Spectrum interviewed dozens of voters from the North, Northeast, the South and Bangkok to try and ascertain their voting intentions, understanding of and future hopes for the constitution penned by Meechai Ruchupan. The interview subjects came from all walks of life, from farmers and business people to schoolteachers, lawyers, consultants and politicians.
