WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion.

Recognize social security and Medicare as socialist and it goes to 99/100
This would be the 43% that pays no taxes yet collects full monetary benefits.
When *American* people the media apparatus located in this country, it will slowly change.
But not before.
The reason Socialism still exists in America is that we’re such a WEALTHY nation that the Socialists haven’t ‘run out of other people’s money’ yet.
And probably never will, if 51% of us are still working and producing and letting Mother Government confiscate our hard-earned dollars for re-distribution, here and abroad!
I really think it’s that simple.
Could be right.
So tired of big government and big media.
The people that are invading this country (both legal and illegal) come from socialist countries. They’re coming for the free stuff that the stupid white people provide for them They wouldn’t reciprocate.
Misshun Akompishd for the Publik Skrool Sistem
Gallup’s backup data includes questions on various aspects of this, and breakdowns by category of respondents that show where the communism is strongest (female, young, non-white, college indoctrinated). No surprises there. Note that the results are for adults in America and have been “weighted” by Gallup. I was hoping without success for a breakout of answers by natural born versus immigrant (I guess just to confirm my bias). We’re doomed.
4 in 10 Americans aren’t....................
It’s simple folks.....From Democrats Uncle, Joe Biden to Nutcase, Socialist/Communist.Failed NYC Mayor, Bill De Blasio and everyone in between running as Democrat Party 2020 POTUS candidates, all of them are “ZEROS” from A-Z.
Our nation Republic has but one choice going forward, and that one choice is re-electing POTUS, Donald J. Trump as our POTUS. Case closed!!!
If not...and, one of the Democrat Party twisted freaks becomes POTUS, this nation as we know it will quickly die within ten years of this fatal error.
Of course all of our deadly enemies, The Russians, The Chinese, The Iranians, The North Koreans, The Cubans, The Venezuelans, etc., will be living in glee as they take over your lives and futures and dispose of many you in one horrible way or another. Shucks...they can starve you and your children with ease and not a second thought.
I would only advise American voters to put on your thinking caps and take heed of the history of this magnificent experiment called the United States of America. We are far from perfect and have made many mistakes, but...we are the best and fairest nation in the entire world. Think hard and correct before you cast your votes...your lives and futures depend on your choice!!!
40% are socialists? Then lets hope they sacrifice themselves as cannon fodder for the left.
We conservatives can help them do that.
We need to send them to work as US Peace Corps in Venezuela
Ask ten people what “socialism” is and you’ll get ten different answers.
Socialism no places to eat out ,nothing to buy , doesn’t matter because you have no money anyway and everything you do is watched
Note to socialists on the dole: I hate to break this to you, but only a healthy, thriving capitalist economy will be able to keep in the style to which you’ve become accustomed. Vote accordingly.
Try criticizing social security/Medicare here and you will quickly find out how many socialists there are on this site!
When the right wing went full frontal globalist and threw American workers under the bus that was when I knew socialism was inevitable. Only thinking past the next quarter will get you into trouble.
Cubans were told it would be 'free everything and they could share the wealth' ... similar to what North Koreans were told and what the fools in Venezuela grew to believe. ...
Socialism is always a lie. They offer it all - they deliver misery.
Send groups of college students to Venezuela to see for themselves what a ‘worker's paradise’ is all about... Then offer them some of the local a fare... barbecued pet cat for dinner... And that hellhole - once the wealthiest country in South America - is going to get worse.
If you break down that 43% you’ll find that it skews very young.
And a few more of us to go that great Tea Party in the Sky each day. They’re gaining one us, merely by virtue of time continuing to tick away.
4 in 10? So, does that mean 60% of other people will vote Republican? I know that’s too simple minded, but let’s hope!
