Shocking Gallup Poll: Democrats View Socialism More Positively Than Capitalism

Democrats think our government can and should pay for everything but just can’t seem to understand that the government produces nothing itself. It has to be taken from all the productive members of society.

These idiots will be in for a very rude awakening if they ever get Socialism like they really want. A life of slavery in abject poverty while the ruling elite live high on the hog with the best of everything.

Here are the dangerous results of 60 years of welfare, affirmative action, and participation trophies.

The poll shows a stark drop in Democrat’s attitude toward capitalism over the past two years, with Democrats going from 56 percent viewing it positively in 2016 to 47 percent in 2018.

Their attitudes toward socialism are largely unchanged from the poll last year; 57 percent view it positively now versus 58 percent in 2016, when democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) mounted a strong bid for the Democratic nomination for president. In 2010, 53 percent of Democrats viewed socialism positively.

There’s also been a significant decline in how younger Americans view capitalism. In 2010, 68 percent of those aged 18 to 29 viewed capitalism positively, but only 45 percent viewed it positively in 2018.

Republicans are far more likely to view capitalism in a good light, with 71 percent saying they have a positive view in the Gallup survey. Just 16 percent say they view socialism positively. Those numbers are similar to 2010, when 72 percent of Republicans had a positive view of capitalism, and 17 percent had a positive view of socialism. More

I wonder what percentage of the people surveyed could properly define socialism or capitalism?

Remember this poll come November. Every patriot needs to understand that the 2018 midterm elections are the most important midterms of our lifetime.
