There’s no doubt that socialism has become increasingly popular among Democrats, however some may not realize just how popular the ideology has become.
A new Fox News poll showed that more Democrats favor socialism over capitalism, in a sharp reversal from just a year and a half ago.
The poll, taken between Aug. 7-10, showed that 59% of registered
Democratic voters who participated had a positive view of socialism, compared to just 49% who felt that way about capitalism, the outlet reported.
As recently as February of 2020, data collected showed that 50% of participating Democrats said that they viewed capitalism favourably.
The recent poll also showed that 67% of Republicans had a positive outlook on capitalism.
Only a minuscule 8% of Republicans viewed socialism in a positive light.
It would appear that Republican voters are more organized, and on the same page with each other as compared to Democrats.
Many attribute the radical dip into socialism to political leaders like AOC, and Bernie Sanders who favor the broken economic system.
