More than four in ten Americans, including 70 percent of Democrats, say some form of socialism would be good for the country, according to a new poll from Gallup.

The Daily Caller further reports:
 

While socialism is popular among Democratic voters, a majority of voters overall, 51%, say embracing it would be bad for the country, the Gallup survey found.

Just 25% of Democrats said some form of socialism would be “a bad thing for the country as a whole,” according to the survey, which Gallup released Monday.

Among Republicans, 84% of respondents said that embracing some form of socialism would be bad for the U.S. A plurality of independents, 48%, said the same.

...

Establishment Democrats, meanwhile, have attempted to distance their party from socialism ahead of the 2020 election.


Gallup's findings are particularly concerning considering the entrepreneurial spirit that propelled America to greatness.
