1. More than 40% of Americans agree “the country would be better off if our political and economic systems were more socialist…”

• While a majority of voters disagree with this notion (51%), fully 45% of voters agree that: “The country would be better off if our political and economic systems were more socialist, including taxing the wealthy to pay for social programs, nationalizing health care so that it’s government-run and redistributing wealth.”

• The partisan gap on this question is more like a chasm. Democrats agree with the notion that the country would be better off if our political and economic systems were more socialist by a whopping 77%-19% margin, while Republicans (14%-83%) and Independents (37%-56%) strongly disagree.

• Potential Democratic primary voters are even stronger in their agreement with this statement. “Strong” Democrats (representing 22% of the electorate) agree with the statement by 80%-17%, with a majority (54%) strongly agreeing.

• Voter intensity is on the “disagree” side – 23% of voters strongly agree with this statement while 41% strongly disagree.

• There is a wide generational divide on this question, with younger voters (under age 45) agreeing with the statement by a 53%-40% margin, and older voters disagreeing by 60%-38%.

Yes, we're headed toward social democracy and there's nothing you can do to stop it.

Oh, No, not the Emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977!!

60% of older voters object to Social Security and Medicare? Fascinating.

Those under 45 have been subject to a lot more brainwashing than those over 45.

You mean they finally have been permitted to learn about the rest of the world and what goes on there?

Who allowed that to happen?

The older voters were taught the three Rs and not social justice.

The first time I heard about Situation Ethics was in Church, not school. But Jesus taught social justice which was taught in all the schools I attended, as the Golden Rule.

Just learning the 3Rs left with the onevroom schoolroom, and when theybstarted learning to spell Mathmatics and Arithmetic!

Taught to the tune of a hickory stick.
