A stunning new poll released by Gallup shows a majority of Democrats now prefer “socialism” to “capitalism,” signaling the shocking new direction of the party just months before American voters head to the polls.

The survey finds that “for the first time in Gallup’s measurement over the past decade, Democrats have a more positive image of socialism than they do of capitalism.”

Just eight years ago, 53% of those asked said they held a positive view of socialism. That number rose to 57% in 2018. Those numbers widened when liberal voters were questioned over their views of capitalism, with just 47% viewing it favorably in 2018.

“Perhaps most telling, the sharpest drop in Democratic support for capitalism is recent. In 2016, capitalism was viewed positively by 56% of those leaning Democrat. In 2018, that number dropped to 47%. That is a drop of 9% of Democrats who view capitalism positively in just the last two years,” writes the Daily Caller.

The surprising survey comes as a string of Democratic candidates, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, espouse massive government programs; including universal healthcare, a guaranteed basic income, free college, and public housing.
