Occupy Wall Street Has More Support Than Tea Party. Your Reaction?

10/14/11: New Poll Shows Occupy Wall Street Has More Support Than Tea Party. Surprisingly the highest support is among people making over 75k dollars a year. What is your reaction to this poll and where the movement is going?

NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll:

  • 37% of the country tends to support the movement; 18% oppose; 25% have no opinion. That’s more than those who say they support the Tea Party -- just 26% say they support it, while 64% say they do not. 
  • Perhaps counter-intuitively, the movement has its highest support among the highest income earners, (those making more than $75,000 year): 40% support, 24% oppose. Among the poorest, however, it is also popular (less than 30K year): 35% support, 11% oppose.
  • Among ethnic groups, the protests are popular among African-Americans, 41% support, 7% oppose; among Hispanics 35% support, 15 oppose; among Whites 37% support, 18% oppose.
  • Among political parties, unsurprisingly, the movement is most popular among Democrats (56%-6%), and least popular among Republicans, where a plurality do not support 17%-34%. Independents support 34%-17%. Source:www.msnbc.com

Reaction Of the Day:I don't know who you talk to, but I am 55 and am willing, no have tried, to get ANY job. I have 25 years in the IT field and I can't get a daytime bartender job, a helpdesk job, waiter, or anything. I and the others want to work, but we can't get hired because we are "overqualified" which, of course, translates to "too old." But again, I will take any job, ANY job. " Anonymous.
