Note that when you are using the verb suppose with a that clause in order to state a negative opinion or belief, you normally make suppose negative, rather than the verb in the that clause. For instance, it is more usual to say 'I don't suppose he ever saw it' than 'I suppose he didn't ever see it'. The same pattern applies to other verbs with a similar meaning, such as believe, consider, and think. He didn't believe she could do it. I don't consider that you kept your promise. I don't think he saw me.
'What would you tell them?' — 'The truth, I suppose.'
I suppose I'd better do some homework.
'Is that the right way up?' — 'Yeah. I suppose so.'
