      Opposing the status quo is never popular until it is.

      Do you think that the people who are occupying Wall Street or Oakland or any of the many other locations give a rip about trends?  These people are sleeping out in the cold, geting bashed and pepper sprayed by police and facing arrest.  If they were worried about trends and polling, they wouldn't be out there in the first place.

        And if what they are hoping to accomplish is to convince each other of their righteousness, then that's fine.

        But, if they actually want to change anything at all, they need to convince others to join them (either literally or at least in spirit).

        Besides, the initital point I was responding to was referring to how things that were once polled poorly eventually became the majority position.  My response was that while you see that frequently, it is much less common for something to become even less popular, then come roaring back.
