Democrats More Positive About Socialism than Capitalism


Gallup: “Democrats have a more positive image of socialism than they do of capitalism. Attitudes toward socialism among Democrats have not changed materially since 2010, with 57% today having a positive view. The major change among Democrats has been a less upbeat attitude toward capitalism, dropping to 47% positive this year — lower than in any of the three previous measures. … Republicans remain much more positive about capitalism than about socialism, with little sustained change in their views of either since 2010.”
