70% of Millennials Would Vote for a Socialist, Poll Reveals
Poll published by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation
Seventy percent of millennials say they would vote for a self-identifying socialist candidate, according to a poll released in October.
The poll, published by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, revealed that 70 percent of millennials (defined as between the ages of 23 and 38) suggested they somewhat or extremely likely to vote for a socialist candidate.
Furthermore, the poll found that 64 percent of Generation Z (between the ages between 16 and 22) also said they were somewhat or extremely likely to vote for a socialist candidate.
The poll also noted that 50 percent of millennials and 51 percent of Generation Z have a somewhat or very unfavorable view of Capitalism.
But older generations, between the ages of 39 and 54, 36 percent of Baby Boomers (between the ages of 55 and 73) and 32 percent of the Silent Generation (ages 74 and above) said they are somewhat or extremely likely to vote for a socialist candidate.
“Favorability of communism and Marxism is rising among millennials,” notes Monday’s poll.
The poll also adds that around one-in-three millennials view communism favorably.
But favorability of Marxism is down by 6 points for Generation X from last year.
Moreover, only a little over half of the millennial respondents believed the Declaration of Independence better guarantees freedom and inequality over the Communist Manifesto.
The poll revealed that 72 percent of Americans, in general, are unaware that communism has killed less than 100 million people in the past 100 years.
Socialists have murdered well more than 100,000,000 innocent folks in the past 102 years, often in ghastly ways.
This same form of socialism is alive and well in American politics.
It is lying below the surface — and all they allow us to see are its brightly colored deceits. Mayor Pete and his daddy love the socialist Antonio Gramsci, who said, "Socialism is precisely the religion which must overwhelm Christianity[.]
"In the new order, socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches, and the media by transforming the consciousness of society."
