Poll Shows Occupy Movement Support Grows
Since the Occupy Wall Street movement started more than a month ago, more people are expressing their support for it.
That’s according to a new survey from New York-based global research firm ORC International, which polled 1,050 adult Americans Oct. 28-31.
Thirty-six percent said they agree with the Occupy cause, up from 27% when the movement started back in late September.
Still, 44% said they weren’t sure how they felt about Occupy, compared with 54% who expressed the same uncertainty at the beginning of October, the data showed.
Meanwhile, Occupy organizers in several cities continue to encourage consumers to move their funds from banks and into credit unions and community banks. Many credit unions are planning to open and extend hours on Bank Transfer Day, which is scheduled for Saturday.
