Poll: Occupy Wall Street Gets Support From Only 37% Of Americans
A name change is in order, I think. They’re not the 99%’ers, they’re the 37%’ers, though the article plays cute and tries to obscure the low approval numbers by lumping in the 58% who say they’re “furious” about American politics.
Being furious about American politics does not make you a supporter of OWS.
More than one-third of the country supports the Wall Street protests, and even more — 58 percent — say they are furious about America’s politics.
The number of angry people is growing as deep reservoirs of resentment grip the country, according to the latest Associated Press-GfK poll.
Some 37 percent of people back the protests that have spread from New York to cities across the country and abroad, one of the first snapshots of how the public views the “Occupy Wall Street’’ movement. A majority of those protest supporters are Democrats, but the anger about politics in general is much more widespread, the poll indicates.
The anger about politics is absolutely widespread. Support for OWS, clearly, is not.Tags: Asshats, occupy wall street, polls
