92.5% support for OWS movement
http://www.wnyc.org/blogs/wnyc-news-blog/2011/oct/22/su... /

Visitors to the Occupy Wall Street website tend to be young, identified as Independents and make less than $50,000 a year, according to a recent unscientific survey conducted in collaboration with the group's organizers.

Hector Cordero-Guzman, a professor at Baruch's School of Public Affairs, analyzed the data from a survey posted on the group's website.

Of the 1,619 people who took the survey, 92.5 percent said they somewhat or strongly support the protests, he said. Nearly a quarter said they had participated in demonstrations, the survey found.

"It's a sample that is relatively young," Cordero-Guzman said. "It's a sample that is highly-educated, and it's a sample that works -- but many of them part-time."

2. Was the survey on an OWS website?
if so wouldn't the same be true of Atheist websites, or Republican websites or any other?
