AP-GfK Poll: 37 percent of US public back protestsAP-GfK Poll: Politics angers most in US, but only 37 percent support Wall Street protests
WASHINGTON (AP) ' Most Americans say politics makes them angry. But that does not mean there is wide support for the Wall Street protests against the U.S. power brokers.
The latest Associated Press-GfK poll shows that 37 percent of people do back the protests that have spread from New York to cities across the country. It is one of the first snapshots of how the public views the "Occupy Wall Street" movement.
But more Americans ' 58 percent ' say they are furious about the country's politics than did in January, when 49 percent said they felt that way.
Nearly nine in 10 say they are frustrated with politics and nearly the same say they are disappointed.
