    I think you'll be unpleasantly surprised if the Occupy movement decides to get political, because they certainly are not going to vote Obama.  Jill Stein is already gaining a fair amount of respect and support within the movement.

    Plus, the only way to know if the support is more than 1% is to actually ask the questions on the poll.

    Green is more than an ad slogan. Live Green, vote Green.

      is no need to ask in the poll and it's not like there is a lack of data about third party voters.  Such individuals would have answered "neither" if given a question about for whom they are voting and only were given the major party candidates.  I don't expect to be "unpleasantly surprised" by anything, though you may be if you really expect a significant number of voters to vote third party.

      somehow I doubt that many folks are going to be occupying a voter booth to vote Green.
