Survey: 11% of Wall Street Occupiers are Green Party members

On the New York Times blog “The Caucus”, a post entitled “Occupy Protestors Down on Obama, Survey Finds” has some interesting numbers for Greens:

Dr. Panagopoulos described the protesters as “disgruntled Democrats.” Sixty percent of those surveyed said they voted for Barack Obama in 2008, and about three-quarters now disapprove of Mr. Obama’s performance as president. A quarter said they were Democrats, but 39 percent said they did not identify with any political party. Eleven percent identified as Socialists, another 11 percent said they were members of the Green Party, 2 percent were Republicans and 12 percent say they identified as something else.

  1. I want to convert more. I want to help grow the Green Party by leaps and bounds. I have a chip-in going to start some meet-up groups to help traffic supporters to meetings and events. Trying to raise $300 by the 6th (so we have a full year before the 2012 election):

    My proposal: http://freeindependentsun.com/republic/grassroots-for-progress-organizing-the-green-party-money-tree-fundraiser/

    My chip-in: http://jaktober.chipin.com/grassroots-for-progress

    Any help is appreciated! If I could I’d just fund these myself, but I am traveling and have just enough funds to keep me going for the rest of my trip.
