There are two ways of looking at this Quinnipiac poll analysis (prepared we believe by Philip Klein of the Washington Examiner).
The first is the obvious Yeah, the less of a fat cat rich-ass robber baron bastard you are, the more you support Occupy Wall Street, brother! See, because the less money you make, the more likely you are to be in their nest.
But the more interesting way to look at this data is this way: The more you know about Occupy, the less you like them. And that is the more important finding here.
Even if you make under $30,000 per year, you are more likely not to know much about Occupy. And even if you do, the odds are you dont like them. The higher you go up in income, yes: the less you like Occupy. But then, the number of people who know little about Occupy begins to dropand fast.
If Occupy were a civic organization, a political action group, or even had simple training in marketing, they would see this and shiver. Eeew. We need to really re-vamp our thinking here, re-do our PR, and maybe organize our messaging a little better. Because the more we get our ideas out there, the less people like them. That would, of course, be the sensible thing to do.
But Occupy is not a civic organization, a political action group, nor marketing savvy. They started out as a bunch of dimwits bleating out their self-defeated unhappiness, until they were taken over by radical elements looking to channel them into some sort of counter-American revolutionary brigade. In either case, neither side cares much about popularity, polls, or PR.
They just want your stuff. And more of them are willing to use force to get it.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
