Those Demonstrators in the Park

"The Occupy Wall Street misfits are actually in the minority even along Zuccotti Park, where my agents found them outnumbered by tourists and police. The same is true in Washington, D.C.'s McPherson Square. Yet you need not take my word for it. Consider the polling done by Douglas Schoen, a pollster who served President Bill Clinton and is doubtless still a loyal Democrat. He polled the Zuccotti Park patriots and found "the movement doesn't represent unemployed America and is not ideologically diverse. Rather, it comprises an unrepresentative segment of the electorate that believes in radical redistribution of the wealth, civil disobedience, and, in some instances, violence." As for Americans in general, they are not so high on the folks in the park. A USA Today/Gallup poll taken between October 15 and 16 found 22 percent approved of the movement's goals, 15 percent disapproved, and 63 percent said they did not know enough about the movement to make a judgment.

That does not sound like the Occupiers are making a lot of headway with the average American. But they are making headway with Liberal Democrats." And he goes on the name names.

The American Spectator : Those Demonstrators in the Park

Apparently night vision goggles have allowed police to determine that very few "occupiers" are spending the night in their tents. Also, in New York, the kitchen crew of Zuccotti Park have rebelled and no longer want to feed the homeless--so they are switching to brown rice and something else organic. I suppose they figure the street people can get better fare somewhere else.
