Patch Poll: Do You Think the Occupy Wall Street Movement Has the Potential to Change Public Policy?

The movement has support in Naperville, where Saturday protests are being held.

The protesters sparked little media attention at first. But the Occupy Wall Street movement is growing, and spreading beyond New York to around the world and nearby, with Occupy Naperville.

Protesters call themselves the 99 percent because they believe the richest 1 percent of Americans do not pay their fair share in taxes. Supporters of the movement say they are upset the billions of dollars in bank bailouts doled out during the recession allowed banks to resume earning huge profits while average Americans have had no relief from high unemployment and job insecurity.

A recent CBS poll says 43 percent of Americans agree with the views of the movement.
