Poll: Only 33% Supports the “99%”

Somehow they’ll claim this as a victory. Despite two months of fawning coverage and support from Democrat lumnaries such at the White House Occupier and Nancy Pelosi, the criminal mob known as Occupy Wall Street enjoys a mere 33% approval.

The Occupy Wall Street movement is not wearing well with voters across the country. Only 33% now say that they are supportive of its goals, compared to 45% who say they oppose them. That represents an 11 point shift in the wrong direction for the movement’s support compared to a month ago when 35% of voters said they supported it and 36% were opposed. Most notably independents have gone from supporting Occupy Wall Street’s goals 39/34, to opposing them 34/42.

The Tea Party is favored by 42%, despite two years of overwhelmingly negative press when contrasted with the ultra-violent “occupy” goons. According to the story, that means nobody cares for them.

Voters don’t care for the Tea Party either, with 42% saying they support its goals to 45% opposed.  But asked whether they have a higher opinion of the Tea Party or Occupy Wall Street movement the Tea Party wins out 43-37, representing a flip from last month when Occupy Wall Street won out 40-37 on that question. Again the movement with independents is notable- from preferring Occupy Wall Street 43-34, to siding with the Tea Party 44-40.

Imagine how their popularity will crater when people are exposed to the terrorist threats.

    They are already writing that this is a victory- they are saying that the lack of popularity demonstrates how anti-establishment they are and thus that even if their popularity fell to 1% they would represent the 99% of people in America.

    Doublethink is a hallmark of the modern-day American left.

    The PPP poll included an excessive number of liberals (27%). Gallup puts libs at only 21%

    Also of note, the PPP poll had fewer moderates (31%) compared with Gallup (36%).
