They are not following the laws and are damaging public places. We are a Constitutional Democratic Republic, i.e. we are a nation of laws within the guidelines of a constitution. True peaceful protests work within the guidelines of the existing laws to make their point. This is an unfocused bunch of protesters who do not understand the nature of the country they live in. They are just asking for bigger handouts from the government. They don't understand that the "taxpayers" work for a living and expect them to do the same.....just keep the government out of my way. complain about the bailouts...I don't like them either but realize that the feds gave away the money. Those businesses should have failed, if they had the economy would have began to recover faster by now.

SHAME ON YOU PROPAGANDIST

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.

Age

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.

Racial/Ethnic background

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.

Education

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.

Employment Status

70% of respondents had jobs. 50.4% worked full time. 20.4% worked part time.

Only 13.1% are unemployed.

Income

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.

Politics

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.

Heater says: Your emotional protestation has in no way refuted my statement - evidentiary actions every day are proving the truth of the anarchy in these disparate cells of protestors.

All are tired of being screwed by government and big business...i mean come on, families around the nation are losing their homes, cant feed their families, cant find work whether you have college education or not, medical companies constantly raising costs of medical services and prescriptions, or doctors being allowed to turn patients away because they have decided not to take medicare or medicaid, our children suffer a proper education due to constant budget cuts (oh wait i forgot, you allow schools to have that extra means less in government/big business pockets), all those that oppose this movement, they are scared to stand up for/protect themselves/their families, and their rights as americans...maybe those who oppose the occupy movement should put on the shoes of someone/or a family that has lost everything...have you taken a good look at the homeless population that is growing...i doubt it, because you put heads in the sand and tell yourself that can't happen to you...take a good look...cause as long as government/big business is allowed to roll over the weaker population, you will be in those shoes sooner than you want to be.
