National Journal Poll: 59 Percent Agree With OWS

New data from the United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection Poll shows that 59 percent of Americans agree with the Occupy Wall Street protesters, while 31 percent say they disagree and 10 percent said neither.

“What’s more, many people are paying attention to the rallies. Almost two-thirds of respondents—65 percent—said they’ve heard “a lot” or “some” about the rallies, while 35 percent have said they’ve heard or seen “not too much” or “nothing at all” about the demonstrations,” the National Journal wrote.

Americans also supported a surtax on millionaires, a proposal by Democrats to fund possible jobs legislation, by a huge 68 – 27 margin, consistent with other polling on the issue.
