So-Called 99% Get Support from About...37%
Someone needs remedial math:
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.
Fury about our politics =/= support for OWS. Heck, I'm furious about a lot of our politics. But OWS is not the solution, they're mostly kooks or part of the problem.
Considering how the media has tended to ignore all the craziness going on at the OWS campouts, 37% support is a pretty low number. If the MSM made more out of the sexual assault of an underage girl, vandalism and looting, anti-Semitism and general weirdness of the OWS folks, the so-called 99%'s poll support would be even more reflective of their actual numbers.
