沒有國民黨就沒有中國, Without the Kuomintang there would be no China, A Republic of China Story

At least for now China isn't too popular. I can't say anything about the 2010s. As far as the KMT is concerned, its pretty popular to hate on them on the internet. Westerners who follow Chinese politics online will mostly prefer the opposition parties (though the Gongmindang and New Democratic League would be more controversial). This would be compounded by the fact that the type of Chinese person who spends a lot of time on the English part of the internet isn't the typical KMT supporter.
Looks like the internet ITTL hates the KMT, the same way the internet OTL hates the CCP. The only difference is that ITTL China doesn't censor it and no bans of websites, compared to OTL China. Youtube ITTL will have tons of videos that talks about the KMT and China, which means would it be Pro-China, criticism of China, or Anti-China? Chinese internet users ITTL can watch these videos, with no censorship from the KMT. The KMT can be authoritarian, but they are very tame compared to the CCP.

So the usual Chinese netizens Westerners tend to see on the internet are often supporters of the CDSP or the Liberals?

Not quite as hated as the CCP. As for TTL's version of YouTube, it will be more anti-China, though pro-China voices will increasingly be heard as time goes on.

Yes, though China Youth Party supporters (on average wealthier) are also overrepresented.

So basically they can be literally seen as the cariacture as the rich out of touch people out of touch with most Chinese people.
 
Would some also see them essentially as Western stooges as well?
A bit, and they've traditionally been the party favored by the West. There's actually an interview from the 40s with the leader of the CYP in an American magazine somewhere. In recent years they've been leaning more heavily into Chinese nationalism than they used to.
So, what are the stereotypes for the “average voter” for each of the main Chinese parties, then?
KMT: These guys are big tent, and by far the largest party. Seen by some as the party of Southerners. In places where the KMT is unpopular the party is seen as the party of the urban rich. The average KMT voter is a middle-aged, middle-class voter from Guangdong.

CDSP: Blue collar. People from the smaller and less prosperous cities and towns. Least educated of all the parties. Seen as a Northerner party. The most stereotypical CDSP voter is a someone who moved from a town to the city for work.

CYP: Rich/Upper Middle Class. Their core constituency are businessmen who don't have the government connections that the pro-KMT businessmen often have. Hasn't really been associated with young people for decades. The average CYP voter is a businessman from Shanghai.

Liberal Party: Younger, well-educated, urban voters. Associated with Northeasterners. Average voter is a college educated guy in his 30s who lives in Harbin or Shenyang.

New Democratic League: Associated with far-leftists, labor activists, and intellectuals. Much of their working class supporters have been absorbed by the CDSP. Very broad group but the average voter is someone in Chahar or Xingan who thinks the Communists were not necessarily right, but are unfairly vilified.

Tibet Improvement Party: Han Chinese or older Tibetans. Typical TIP voter is an old person who thinks that the improvement in quality of life was worth the loss of Tibet's independence (though Tibet is the poorest province, it was much poorer in the 50s).

The Liberal Democrats, Greens, and Gongmindang are really small but they're associated with Intellectuals, environmentalists, and organized crime respectively.

For example, in Hebei, a province, that typically votes CDSP. The KMT is associated with rich people from Beiping (Beijing) and Tianjin while industrial cities like Shijiazhuang and Baoding are nearly impossible for the KMT to win. The CYP is even more heavily associated with Beiping and Tianjin. Beiping is a bit unusual though because it has a much better organized left-wing and anti-KMT movement than similarly sized cities like Shanghai and Guangzhou so the CDSP and even the NDL are strong there. The Liberal Party is also strong in Beiping.
 
There have been a few small skirmishes over the last 60 years. Right now the area is heavily militarized by Burma.
Continuing on Jiangxinpo and other claimed areas of the ROC, is there a Chinese community living there? And do they protest for autonomy or unification with the ROC?
And is there also martial law and militarization in Arunachal Pradesh as well in India?
