Poll: Occupy Wall Street More Popular Than Tea Party

A new Time Magazine poll shows that the protesters down at Zuccotti Park as part of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations are viewed favorably by 54 percent of Americans.  Meanwhile, the poll found that only 27 percent have similar feelings toward Occupy Wall Street’s right wing counterpart, the Tea Party.

The poll comes out just as Mayor Mike Bloomberg has ordered the protesters to temporarily vacate the park so that it can be cleaned, something that may spark a confrontation between the police and the demonstrators.

The poll also comes out as the Tea Party is resisting comparisons to Occupy Wall Street. Read More Poll: Occupy Wall Street More Popular Than Tea Party
