Indeed. The most recent one I've heard about shows about 60% support the writers, 14% support the studios, with the rest not caring/undecided. This was as recent as last week. Plus, by polls, more than 84% are aware of the strike. This poll was taken a week into the strike. I'd imagine a lot more know about it by now.
I initially supported the writers, but while I still think they deserve more than what they're getting, I'm growing more and more appalled by the tactics of the WGA, particularly its leaders. There are reports that as far back as a year before the strike, the leaders of the WGA were unwilling to accept any offer, regardless of what it was. There are reports of the WGA mistrepresenting the facts.
