    Just 33 percent of those polled strongly agreed with a Tea Party GOP message focused on austerity, reducing the size of government, and keeping taxes low for everyone. The poll also found that Occupy Wall Street is viewed more favorably than the Tea Party, the Republican Party, and any of the Republican presidential contenders. The results comport with another poll out yesterday showing that Occupy Wall Street is more popular than both Wall Street itself and Washington, DC."

    And the same poll says that 31% think the Tea Party has been good thing for America, while only 25% think OWS has.

    As usual, this poll was heavily weighted towards Democrats. Dems were included in far larger numbers than in real life.

    You mean to say that the majority of Americans are still the sensible folks, great friends, and outstanding neighbors I always thought them to be?

    That is very heartening in most respects but it makes the news highlights less interesting.

    The Tea Party has been around for several years, versus several months for OWS. OWS has not had nearly the opportunity to impact the country one way or another. Hence the 49% who think OWS hasn't made much difference one way or another.

    yeah, you're right that most people don't know much about the OWS crowd yet. Just wait until they hear about all the rapes, thefts, drugs, assaults, etc., etc. that has been going on in their "camps".

    I'm sure public perception will improve then.....

    The problem with Reps/cons is that they are assuming that OWS is made up mostly of Liberals, why the right-wing is too eager to bash OWS. If they would do some research before commenting on any issue they would appear less ignorant. FYI, OWS is mostly made up of Independents (who many times vote Republican, and other times vote Democrat), but FYI, there are also some Republicans represented in OWS. So, before you start feeling so superior, be aware that you are bashing those from your own party.

    OWS is also a true grass roots movement. They don't have any kind of consensus platform or really any kind of central organization. There's no question that a fair number of kooks have been drawn to the protests.

    The main difference is that OWS is a true grass roots PROTEST, whereas the Tea Party has organized political rallies.

    Is yours made up by Faux News? I noticed you gave no link.

    You might have a point if I had claimed that OWS was comprised mostly with liberals. Since I didn't, you wasted a lot of space.
