Nearly three-quarters of young Americans are likely to vote for a socialist candidate, a new poll reveals, suggesting capitalism has lost its appeal. But is it really capitalism when government funds all but the working class?
Young Americans view socialism much more favorably than their elders, with 70 percent likely to vote for a socialist, according to a poll released on Monday by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation. The survey also found that 50 percent of millennials (aged 23 to 38) have an unfavorable view of capitalism. Only Generation Z (aged 16 to 22) was more anti-capitalist – 51 percent view the economic system negatively.
