我不这样认为 I suppose not.
但是 I don't suppose so这样的说法有吗? 地道吗?

这样说是可以的。以下是British Council - English Grammar中的解释:

We often use verbs like think, suppose, expect and hope, to answer questions.
- when the answer is yes we add so (I expect so, I hope so, etc.).
- if the answer is no we say I don't think so, I don't suppose so, etc..
- but with hope we say I hope not.

另外, BBC Learning English 中也有类似的说法:

It is also used in short answers with the same meaning of think/believe/imagine/expect. Note that two forms of the negative are possible here:
- Will Jeremy be at Peter's this evening? ~ I don't think/suppose/imagine/expect so.
- Will you try to see Jennifer when you get back? ~ I think/suppose/imagine/expect not.
- Would you be prepared to stay on for an extra week? ~ I suppose/expect/guess so.
Note that suppose here describes a mental or emotional state, and it is not normally used in the continuous form.

Google Trends 现在不能用,否则用它来查一查使用的普遍程度和趋势,会很有帮助。

Searching "I don't suppose so" returned "About 668,000 results",所以,还是有很多人用的。但也有人说用的人越来越少了,或较少听到。

语法上肯定没问题,但我没听到过这样说的。更经常听到的是:

  • I suppose not.
  • I suppose it's not the case.
  • I suppose it's different.
  • I don't think so.

以上是 BBC Learning English 中的解释。另外,British Council - English Grammar中也有类似的说法:

Suppose and supposed to are used very frequently in British English too. We shall see that suppose has a number of different meanings and uses and that supposed to is different again from suppose.

suppose = think/believe/imagine/expect

In this sense, suppose is often used in requests with negative structures when we hope the answer will be positive:

 - I don't suppose you could lend me your dinner jacket, could you? ~ Sure! When do you need it?
 - I suppose it's too late to see the doctor now, isn't it? ~ Hold on. Let me see if I can fit you in.
 - I don't suppose I could see the doctor now, could I?~ I can fit you in at 11.30. Can you wait till then?
