A record number of Democrats say they approve of socialism, even as Americans overall remain steadfast in their opposition.

A record-high 65 percent of Democrats tell the Gallup polling organization they have a positive view of socialism, a drastic increase over the 53 percent who said the same in 2010.

Gallup has conducted six polls since 2010 asking Americans if they have a positive or negative view of small business, free enterprise, capitalism, “big business,” socialism and the federal government.

Gallup’s 2021 poll found 60 percent of Americans approving of capitalism and 38 percent approving of socialism.   That figure has been nearly identical in all six polls since 2010.

But there’s been a drastic change among increasingly radicalized Democrats.

When Gallup first polled the question in 2010, Democrats’ views of socialism and capitalism were largely the same, with 53 percent approving of socialism and 52 percent approving of capitalism.

But there’s been a major change among Democrats since, with approval of socialism rising 12 percent.

Currently 65 percent of Democrats have a positive view of socialism, with positive views of capitalism still at 52 percent.  Among Democrats, approval of capitalism was higher than approval of socialism until 2018, until the party began rapidly radicalizing.

  1. I heard about and I’ve made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. The potential with this is endless. 
    Here’s what I do… 𝐆𝐨𝐨𝐠𝐥𝐞𝐖𝐨𝐫𝐤𝟎𝟏.𝐓𝐤

  2. LISTEN UP….GOD Says….HE is TAKING DOWN the DEMOCRATS….the CHINESE GOVT and the TERRORISTS. Is ANYTHING Impossible for GOD?????? GOD Always WINS. From SamuraiQueen. 😄😄😄

    1. Be extremely careful in what you say, prophesying lies cost Hananiah his life… Then said the prophet Jeremiah unto Hananiah the prophet, Hear now, Hananiah; The Lord hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust in a lie. Therefore thus saith the Lord; Behold, I will cast thee from off the face of the earth: this year thou shalt die, because thou hast taught rebellion against the Lord (Jeremiah 28:15-16).

      This I know from what the Holy Spirit whispered in my left ear three days in a row to lead me to the book, “Through the Fire Without Burning,” which was written by Pastor Dumitru Duduman, who was the first of three pastors the Holy Spirit has lead me too, whom God had shown the destruction of the United States by China and Russia.
      The Holy Spirit has also given me two confirmations for the second major attack on the United States, which will be approx. 1000 times greater than the Sept. 11, 2001, attack. It will occur in at least three areas, one somewhere in Southern California, and two on the upper East Coast, looking most likely to be in or near Philadelphia and Boston.
      I learned from reading about Gideon and his exploits about asking God for two confirmations to verify what was given him by the Angel of the LORD.

  3. Democrats are crazy as fruit cakes. God forbid. We need to get rid of them. But God has a plan and they will be taken care of. He is in control

  4. “A record-high 65 percent of Democrats tell the Gallup polling organization they have a positive view of socialism, a drastic increase over the 53 percent who said the same in 2010.”

    Which means the public schools and universities are failing to educate our children.

    1. Public schools and universities are teaching the BENEFITS of socialism. Our schools are the root of the problem and it’s because of Lying Bastard Johnson’s continuation of the war in Viet Nam where we had no business being in the first place.

  5. These are NOT Americans! America was not founded on this BS and it will NEVER become law and should they try and fake the votes like they did to get the loser playing president now there will be a civil war in this country the likes the world has never seen!

  6. This is a bunch of Communists talking–trying to bullying and lying to American people–do not believe this garbage.

  7. Democratic who support socialism have failed to understand history. NO SOCIALIST COUNTRY HAS BEEN A SECESS AND BECAME DICTATORSHIP AND A COMMUNISM ANOTHER FAILURE EVEN CHINA AND RUSSIA REALIZED THIS. If y’all believe that socialism is your wish and your willingness to give away your freedom go to country that have socialism and see the poverty of the system. All liberals who believe this happy horse hockey goes to show how educational institutions have failed our children?

  8. We could cut our carbon footprint if we exiled these communist democrat pedophile racist woke cult party members to Afghanistan!

  9. America Vote out the Nazis AKA the democratic party next election We The People demand our country back from the Nazis

  10. Isn’t it wonderful what Money can Buy! Put enough People on the Government Dole and you will win every Election! You will win every Election Right up until you no longer need them and declare yourselves Rulers for Life! What then? We know what other communists have done!

  11. Socialism & Marxism are the bedrock beliefs upon which communism is founded. At one time in America the Communist Party (CP) was outlawed. Therefore, I submitted that the aforementioned items are outlawed too. Anyone who is a member of the CP or socialist party is therefore guilty of sedition as they advocate for the overthrow of our government/constitution.

  12. Kids are growing up fast under this awful administration and are beginning to pay attention to politics. They want the same things their democrat parents wanted and that’s far, far afield from today’s democrat party. I have faith, they’ll pull the nation back to the strong constitutional republic it once was. They want to be free and own property like every non socialist on the planet.

  13. Besides Democrats being the Idiotic Scrounge of the Nation, many times it’s the method and wording of the question. How it’s asked makes a lot of difference.

  14. The Democrats are no longer with God that is why they have this awful radical thoughts!
    Pray people to Our Lord Jesus Christ to protect us and the USA!

  15. Maybe these want-to be Socialist should talk to someone from a Country that has Socialism run Gov’t. Socialism is Never good for We The People. Only the Gov’t.
    Democrats want to Legalize Anarchy & Ban Law & Order!

    The REAL purpose of Critical Race Theory– is to Teach Kids that America is “Systemically Racist,” so in order to “Fix It” we must DESTROY the Entire System, including our Constitution & the Bill of Rights. Which is a Ticking Time Bomb our Country may Not Survive.

    Yes when Biden looks in the mirror, does he think all his Failures Don’t pertain to him.
    We R dealing w/ so many of his Failures Right now. Increased Food Prices & Shortages, Open Borders (well over a MILLION & a Half Illegals), Drug Smuggling, Human Trafficking, Kabul, Covid & other Diseases coming to our Country, Increase Gasoline & Heating Prices took away our Energy Independence relying on Foreign Countries, Critical Race Theory in your kids Schools (Indoctrinating your kids), Abolished Law & Order Agencies, Never seen National Debt, Total Inflation.

    Bringing more people to our Country is taking up our Resources to Survive. We have Food Shortages in so many areas. How R Citizens to Survive? This President & his Administration don’t seem to give a Damn about us. To Busy promoting Hate & Racism dividing people. Handing out Freebees we Cannot Afford. Putting Huge Burdens on Legal Citizens.

    When will Jill be charge for Elder Abuse? Letting Democrats Control Biden w/ his Dementia. Who is Really Running this Country?? What was the Deal to Jill to make her husband look like a “Bumbling Idiot.”

    Biden has Flooded our Country w/ more Dangerous 3rd World Illegals in his first 6 months than any previous President in America’s History & it’s all on Purpose.

    Wake Up Folks

  16. Didn’t we fight a couple wars to stop the spread of this politically transmitted disease currently called socialism (facisim, whatever. It’s all the same rotten nastiness spread around the world by contact with these ignorant, inbred assholes in the Democrat party.) Screw everyone of those traitors. They should all be dragged into the fields and left to rot.

  17. Everyone who wants free stuff turns to socialism, do not fall into that trap, it will ruin the country. Vote Republican straight ticket everytime.
