In our most recent poll – and with the most participation ever in any poll the OB Rag has ever run – over 80% stated that they agree with views commonly shared by Occupy Wall Street protesters. 399 respondents voted in our poll that ran for one week beginning October 28, 2011. 82% declared that they support the OWS goals.
Only 15% said they disagree. 3% were not sure.
And to top it off, 17.5% said that they have been involved with the Occupy San Diego movement, or 70 respondents. This is astounding! And great!
Usually, we receive an average of 126 respondents to our polls (this is since last May), but with one shy of 400 on this inquiry, we’re pretty certain that there is a lot of support for the Occupy movement among our liberal base of readers, and because we have been publishing numerous articles about the Occupy Wall Street movement and its local version on a daily basis, we’ve gained a lot of new readers.
Here is the poll and its results:
