Egyptians souring on further protests

CAIRO, April 1 (UPI) --
Polling shows broad swaths of Egyptians are tiring of protests, including pro- and anti-Muslim Brotherhood demonstrations.

The Egyptian Center for Public Opinion Research said 74 percent of Egyptians objected to a protest by anti-government activists outside the Muslim Brotherhood's Guidance Bureau. The protests devolved into violent clashes between protesters and Brotherhood youths.

Only 14 percent of respondents supported the protest.

Similar numbers oppose a Muslim Brotherhood-organized demonstration outside the offices of cable news stations for what protesters said was biased, anti-Muslim news coverage, Egypt Independent said.

Only 8 percent of those surveyed approved of that protest, with 78 percent disapproving.
