Break down of the Occupy Wall Street people.
Traffic on the Occupy Wall Street site averaged about 400,000 visitors a day during the sample week (October 7th), which represents more than 10% of the population. 1619 people completed the survey.
Not surprising, nearly 2/3 of the protesters are under 35. But one in three is over 35 and one in five is over 45.
81.3% of respondents considered themselves White, 1.3% Black\African American, 3.2% Asian,.4% Native American Indian, 2.9% Mixed, 7.7% Hispanic, and 3.2% considered themselves some other group.
Only 7.9% of respondents lack at least some college.
27.4% have some college (but no degree), 35% have a college degree, 8.2% have some graduate school (but no degree), and close to 21.5% have a graduate school degree.
70% of respondents had jobs. 50.4% worked full time. 20.4% worked part time.
Only 13.1% are unemployed.
47.5% of the sample earns less than $24,999 dollars a year and another quarter (24%) earn between $25,000 and $49,999 per year.
71.5% of the sample earns less than $50,000 per year.
15.4% of the sample earned between $50,000 and $74,999.
The remainder 13% of the sample earn over $75,000 with close to 2% earning over $150,000 per year.
27.3% of respondents considered themselves Democrats, another 2.4% said they were Republican.
Interestingly, a very large proportion of the sample, close to 70.3%, considered themselves Independents.
Cordero-Guzman concluded that the 99% looked like the 99%.
The one way they did significantly differ was in gender. 67% were male. 30.9% were female and 2% preferred another gender designation.
92.5% of the respondents either strongly or somewhat agree with the protests. Over 91.8% believe the movement is likely to grow.
SHAME CORPORATE PROPAGANDIST

For too long corporate greed has manhandled democracy. Now it's our turn to take back what is rightfully ours.

The above poster is a paid for propagandist working for an advertising Corporation. He wants you to have hate in your heart and is only trying to confuse the good people of America. Don't give yourself to this unnatural man. He wants to use you and tell you what to think.
The people are waking up to how America is ran by a Corporatocracy. Going to the voting booth every couple years to pick which Corporate puppet we want to lead America is not going to cut it anymore.
Occupy is to get money out of politics. And stop allowing mega Corporations to control America's democracy.
Is this to hard of an idea for your dumb ass to understand?
