    Check My Sentence Please

    I don't understand why people are interested in my supporting him.

    I wonder whether saying my supporting is correct.

    You are correct.

    People are interested in your action, not you, so lt would be wrong to say "............in me supporting...........", but correct to say they would be interested in what you were doing.
