Douglas Schoen: Polling the Occupy Wall Street Crowd - WSJ.com

Douglas Schoen: Polling the Occupy Wall Street Crowd - WSJ.com: A fine lot Rev Morales cast his lot with as Doug Schoen's polling finds.
...the Occupy Wall Street movement reflects values that are dangerously out of touch with the broad mass of the American people—and particularly with swing voters who are largely independent and have been trending away from the president since the debate over health-care reform.

The protesters have a distinct ideology and are bound by a deep commitment to radical left-wing policies. On Oct. 10 and 11, Arielle Alter Confino, a senior researcher at my polling firm, interviewed nearly 200 protesters in New York's Zuccotti Park. Our findings probably represent the first systematic random sample of Occupy Wall Street opinion.
Fully a third accept violence to advance their political agenda too. So UUA Growth Blog wants to build a Church on the backs of these kids. Been there, done this, it ends badly. That violent one third's gonna take over, and like Billy Ayers, leader from the last go round, someone else takes the crack on the head, while the leader runs off with the girl.
