Leading Republican Pollster Frank Luntz Says Occupy Wall Street Is Having An Impact

Leading Republican pollster and strategist Frank Luntz says he is concerned about the impact that Occupy Wall Street is having on public opinion.

From Think Progress

” The Republican Governor’s Association met in Florida this week and featured pollster Frank Luntz…Luntz told attendees that he’s “scared of this anti-Wall Street effort. I’m frightened to death.” The pollster warned that the movement is “having an impact on what the American people think of capitalism….Luntz said that his polling research found that “The public…still prefers capitalism to socialism, but they think capitalism is immoral. And if we’re seen as defenders of quote, Wall Street, end quote, we’ve got a problem.”

Here is the Occupy Wall Street website.

Here is Occupy Houston. 

Here is Occupy Galveston. 

There is also an Occupy College Station Facebook page as well as Facebook pages for Occupy efforts all across the United States.

Noted author and columnist William Greider has some thoughtful and hopeful things to say about Occupy is his latest column in The Nation.

  1. It is quite obvious that OWS is having more of an effect on opinion than the comedic sideshow called the Tea Party. It is not impossible to have capitalism with a sense of morality; it is only when capitalism is practiced with insatiable greed without regard to other human beings that there is a problem.
