Democrats have a more positive view of socialism than they do of capitalism, a Gallup poll published Monday reveals.
Fifty-seven percent of Democrats view socialism favorably, while just 47 percent of Democrats have a positive view of capitalism, according to the poll. In contrast, 71 percent of Republicans have a positive view of capitalism, while just 16 percent viewed socialism favorably.
Monday’s poll was “the first time in Gallup’s measurement over the past decade that Democrats viewed socialism more favorably than capitalism,” the polling firm noted.
The landmark poll comes as socialists are ascendant in the Democratic Party.
At least two members of the Democratic Socialists of America — a radical group rife with Marxists — could be headed to Congress.
Socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shocked the political world when she upset incumbent Democratic New York Rep. Joe Crowley — a top member of the Democratic establishment — in the June 26 primary. Rashida Tlaib, another DSA member, also won her primary on Aug. 7.
The Gallup poll had a margin of sampling error of plus-or-minus 3 percentage points at the 95-percent confidence level.
