A recent poll confirms what many on the right have been trying to expose: most Democrats love them some socialism.
The Daily Caller reports that a poll conducted by the American Action Network asked if Democrat primary voters view socialism positively or negatively; 57 percent viewed socialism as either somewhat or strongly positive. In a matchup between capitalism and socialism, Democrat primary voters favored socialism, 40 percent to 25 percent.
The numbers become increasingly disturbing, as 67 percent of Democrat primary voters said they somewhat or strongly agreed with banning the media from covering campus protests. Their reasoning was that "most of the media in our country is controlled by corporations who are more interested in profits than telling the truth. "Democrat primary voters also viewed the following policy positions favorably:
- Wealth redistribution (+43 net favorability).
- The government is better at running industries than the private sector (+25 net favorability).
When coupled with the fact that most millennials favor socialism over capitalism, the numbers explain the rise of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT): for all intents and purposes, he is the Democratic Party. Democrat primary voters would be wise to check out The Daily Wire's full breakdown on socialism, and why it is immoral.
