Occupy Wall Street supported by a majority of IEET readers

December 01, 2011

According to results of a recently concluded poll, more than half of IEET readers enthusiastically support the ‘Occupy’ movement.

About 14% of respondents appreciate what the demonstrators are saying, but are skeptical about whether it can make a difference, while 10% say Wall Street is the wrong target because the real villain is big government. Only about 8% agree with Newt Gingrich that the protestors are just dirty hippies who need a bath.

“Other” responses can be found here.
