TheDailyBeast: America’s 10 Angriest Cities

10 Angriest Cities

If there’s one unifying theme among the divergent opinions expressed during the last month of Occupy Wall Street protests and events, it’s that people are fed up and they’re not willing to remain quiet any longer. The fed-upness ostensibly started on the other end of the ideological spectrum with the Tea Party’s first major national day of protest, way back on April 15, 2009, and with dozens of protests throughout the rest of that month.

No matter on which side most people fall—a recent Quinnipiac poll finds 63 percent of New Yorkers support the protesters camped out in Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park—some cities are showing up more than others to express their political voice en masse.

To find America’s 10 Angriest Cities, The Daily Beast combined the turnout totals per capita for the Tea Party’s April 15, 2009 protests and the Occupy Wall Street protests on October 15, 2011—with data from Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight Blog, and reliable reports and estimates—to find the number of protesters per million residents in cities with more than 500,000 people. At least 500 people had to show up to each protest to be considered for their ranking.
