More Continue To Support Occupy Wall Street Goals Than Oppose Them

November 10, 2011, 9:00 PM GMT+0

In the last week, the country-wide Occupy Wall Street demonstrators faced off with police officers in many cities, and protests continued. Americans continue to support the Occupy Wall Street goals, and the movement’s popularity continues with nearly all groups — except Republicans.

Democrats and liberals are especially supportive, but the movement is more popular with those under the age of 65 than with senior citizens. It gets support in all regions except the South. Even those with family incomes above $100,000 are as likely to say they support the movement’s goals as to oppose them.

Opinions of OWS remain more positive than feelings about the Tea Party. Americans overall are more likely to oppose Tea Party goals than to support them.
