I think this poll directly speaks to a lot of the responses I have seen on the various forums concerning OWS. A lot of members, myself included, have said all along that they were targeting the wrong thing. They should have been targeting the government. I think if government had been the target it would have gained more mainstream support and actually gained a lot more steam.
But if you think about the question itself why are people to fear big business? The informed ones certainly do, but most would agree that government with the power to take away your freedom, put you in debt forever, continue pointless (at least in their minds) wars and write laws that effect you personally are the ones to fear. How is prove any point when it's quite obvious? Again another example of partisan blindness.
I welcome any other explanation, but the only thing that makes sense to me is "Big Government under Bush = Bad, Big Government under Obama = Not Bad."
You're going to have to watch me here, because I don't think I've understood the message of this paragraph.
To the people that support Obama tell me how has his policies (the major ones) changed from Bush? To the people that supported Bush, tell me why is Obama the worse president ever !1! when Bush was pretty much went along the same road?

I like your thinking, would you go a step further for me? A lot of people are saying this will be a close presidential election, Obama does have certain advantages. To work your idea of changing things through voting, do we back one party over the other? (That has the advantage of being clear and easy.) Do we figure out some way of identifying all the corrupt politicians and target them individually? (That has the advantage of being focused.) Or, do you have something else in mind?
