OWS’ers are still out making a scene even though the MSM coverage of their activities has sharply fallen off. They have recently interrupted Ron Paul and Mitt Romney as the two addressed audiences in their bid to secure the Republican nomination. But what do American’s think about OWS these days? A new Rasmussen poll on this subject had some interesting results.

Enough is enough as far as most voters are concerned when it comes to the Occupy Wall Street protesters. In fact, 51% of Likely U.S. Voters now view the protesters as a public nuisance. Only 39% see them as a valid protest movement representing the frustrations of most Americans.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey also finds that just 24% think the Occupy Wall Street protesters who first began their protests in early October have gotten their message across to the American people. Fifty-three percent (53%) say they have not gotten their message across, and another 24% are not sure.
The national survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on January 3-4, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports.

Ras mussen

The list of crimes keeps growing and the public support keeps falling.

So where does OWS go from here? Obviously they do not represent the 99% when 51% consider them a nuisance. What is the point of continued protests if the population is sick of them? What do they hope to accomplish at this point?

Only 51%?? I'd think that number would be much higher.
Anyways .. count me as part of that 51%

OWS started out good but quickly turned to muck.
And that they claim to speak for %99 of us? That's obnoxious.

It was a Republican pole only Republicans can vote for there Primary.
So now we know half of Republicans support Occupy Wallstreet.
Good work Occupy Wallstreet. Even Republicans like your style.


And with the Propaganda machine that the Republicans used and pushed in all the Republican based media Occupy Wallstreet is still 49%. They even pulled out the Pimp from Acorn for Occupy Wallstreet. They went all out.

Well they annoy me too when they say crazy, oppressive stuff like "If you are female you should be terrified of Ron Paul" when they don't even have a clue what they are talking about, and supposedly they don't endorse political candidates - it's because they don't HAVE any and they probably don't deserve any because they think but don't seem to think things THROUGH.

I do support them though - they can protest if they want and I don't think it is right that the police are attacking their media and communication centers. I do think they've been wronged. I like that they've got a few people's heads out of the sand and got a few people talking.

So somehow I support them and still find them annoying.

If OWS had a consistent message, and good leadership, then I believe they would have been more effective.

They didn’t want a message, because they wanted to cover a broad range of topics, and they didn’t want central leadership, because they didn’t want a target.

But those are the two things they needed to risk, to leverage a powerful message, it was decided collectively, or rather simply not pursued, and the result was ineffective and annoying protesting.

I think it was a good idea in the beginning, but it should have turned into something bigger, it did not. I do believe the collective hearts of OWS were in the right place at the time.

So 503 likely voters don't like Occupy. Okay. Polls are a terrible way to take the national temperature on anything.

And for the 1 trillionth time...99% doesn't not mean 99% of the population. It means the 99% who control 47% of the wealth compared to the 1% who control 53% of the wealth.

It was a telephone pole of likely voters. I’m pretty sure the phone company is unaware of your political affiliation, so to call it a Republican poll is silly!


Nice try though!

Yes polls are accurate, they accurately represent a very small number of people. I think we have a great deal more than 1,000 voters in the US, don't you?

People in Iowa voted a virtual tie between Santorum and Romney too. 41% of the people going in to vote that day were still undecided as who they would vote for. Voters are always very well informed!

Don't worry, your government is making sure that the inconvenient little document known as the Constitution is being stomped on to ensure the "dirty hippies" don't bother you anymore.

www.rasmussenreports.com...


After the surveys are completed, the raw data is processed through a weighting program to insure that the sample reflects the overall population in terms of age, race, gender, political party, and other factors.


"reflects the overall population in terms of age, race, gender, political party, and other factors"

They know who they called. Only likely voters would be Republicans. Only Republicans can vote in the primary.

Your logic is flawless....

Last time I checked OWS was against the constitution (you know the whole socialism agenda)

but we've been over this

anyways Im glad America can't stand it... I kinda felt like I was by myself for awhile :-p

Doesn't have anything to do with the Constitution.
It has to do with annoying little spoiled brats!
Gimme, gimme, gimme!
They all want a free ride.
Get over it, get a job and contribute to society!
Stop turning parks into tent cities!
