A shocking poll released Monday from YouGov reveals young Americans are lurching left on the political spectrum more than any previous generation; showing 70% would likely vote for a socialist candidate in an American election.
“The survey, conducted by the Victims of Communism and polled by the research and data firm YouGov, found that 70% of Millennials are likely to vote socialist and that one in three Millennials perceive communism as ‘favorable.’ The survey is part of the Victims of Communism’s report ‘U.S. Attitudes Toward Socialism, Communism, and Collectivism,’ which polled2,100 people in the United States who were 16 and older with a margin of error of +/- 2.4%,” reports the Daily Caller.
“When we don’t educate our youngest generations about the historical truth of 100 million victims murdered at the hands of communist regimes over the past century, we shouldn’t be surprised at their willingness to embrace Marxist ideas,” said Marion Smith, executive director of the Victims of Communist Memorial Foundation. “We need to redouble our efforts to educate America’s youth about the history of communist regimes and the dangers of socialism today.”
The poll also shows 10% of millennials -those between the ages of 24 and 38- believe Donald Trump is responsible for “more deaths and human rights abuses” than Soviet Dictator Joseph Stalin and Nazi ruler Adolf Hitler.
