Support for the tea party in contrast with Occupy Wall Street splits along traditional party lines. The majority of support for the tea party comes from Republicans, while backing for the Wall Street protests arises from Democrats, a Washington Post-Pew Research Center poll shows.

Of those identified as Republican or leaning Republican, 71 percent support the tea party, while 64 percent of Democrats or those leaning Democratic line up behind the Wall Street protesters.

Overall, support of both movements falls under 50 percent. The Occupy Wall Street movement has the support of 39 percent of all Americans, with 35 percent opposed and 20 percent undecided. The tea party movement has the backing of 32 percent, with 44 percent opposed and 20 percent undecided.

Independents lean against the tea party movement by a margin of 49 percent opposed and 30 percent support, but they support Occupy Wall Street 43 to 35 percent. Only 10 percent of Americans support both movements. The poll surveyed 1,009 adults Oct. 20 through 23.
