I was only 12 in 1970. My recollection was there were lots of protests against Nixon and the war. As far as rabid supporters go, there were no huge rallies supporting Nixon. Keep in mind there was no internet then so people couldn't rant and rave like they do now. They mostly could just talk with their neighbors and with a few people they knew on the phone. Also, for most people, the news consisted of three tv stations and their local papers, which might have their left or right slants but mostly tried to be somewhat balanced.
