‘Occupy’ Protesters Swarm Trending Site to Vote Online
The Wall Street Protest has spread to cities but not towns. As a result, the only way to make a difference is to assimilate as a unified voice online.
Thousands upon thousands of Occupy Wall Street Protesters and members of the Wall Street Protests have taken the protests online, swarming one website in particular. The trending news and poll site, TheWallStreetProtest.com, launched in October and is raising awareness fast. The site states that it is taking issues raised by visitors, and forming poll questions to raise awareness. The site also states it is not affiliated with any political party, and one of its’ YouTube videos indicates that it is a website for “OWS protesters, Tea Party protesters, Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. ”
Some poll questions are resonating with voters and visitors more so than others. For example, TheWallStreetProtest.com asked, “Should corporations be allowed to contribute to political campaigns, under any circumstances?” Voters overwhelmingly said no.
Other polls suggest campaign finance reform is a major issue. Additionally, Senate term limits (or lack thereof) is an issue striking a chord.
The site has recently announced its’ poll results will be sent to Congress, and that an exciting new interface will be available soon which will allow users to submit the polls they have voted on to their representatives. TheWallStreetProtest.com’s polls, like the movement do not show signs of slowing down. The site has over 12,000 voters and appears to be on an up-swing.
