Poll: Millennials Pick Socialism Over Capitalism

A new survey from YouGov finds that millennials have more favorable views of socialism than of capitalism.

As Santayana said, those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Less than two decades after socialism seemed to have been confined to the dust-heap of history, another generation may have to learn hard lessons.

The survey, taken at the end of January, found that 43 percent of Americans under 30 had a favorable view of socialism. Less than a third of millennials had a favorable view of capitalism. No other age or ethnic demographic preferred socialism over capitalism.

Seniors, unsurprisingly, had the most favorable view of capitalism. Just 23 percent of Americans older than 65 had a positive view of socialism. Sixty-three percent of seniors, though, had a favorable view of capitalism.

Mdrake, these are the progressives. This is the new democrat party.

 

That's a pretty hamfisted question to be honest. What form of socialism do they mean? What form of capitalism do they mean? It's not like social democracy is the same as Stalinism or Rhine capitalism the same as laissez-faire. It doesn't touch on crony capitalism either which has been railed against from Sanders to Trump in this election cycle.
