Monday, 07 Nov 2011 12:46 PM

The Occupy Wall Street movement now has something else in common with the tea party movement, besides a dislike of big business and big government: More people dislike Occupy than like it.

A new nationwide UMass Lowell/Herald poll shows that 40 percent now have an unfavorable opinion of the occupy movement, compared with 35 percent who have a positive opinion, the Boston Herald reported.

The online poll of 1,005 American from Oct. 28 through Nov. 1 is the first to show negative sentiment tilting against the occupy movement, according to the Herald.

Meanwhile, the tea party movement has less support than the occupiers, according to the poll from the UMass Lowell Center for Public Opinion. Half of Americans hold an unfavorable view of the tea party, which 29 percent view favorably.

Supporters of the occupy and tea party movements also share a dislike of big business, with 85 percent of occupy supporters and 64 percent of tea party supporters having a negative view of Wall Street and large corporations.

However, the federal government has few friends, with 71 percent of all Americans reporting an unfavorable impression of the federal government. Some 72 percent of occupy supporters feel the same along with 86 percent of tea party supporters.
