A new poll published by Gallup Tuesday shows a stunning 43% of Americans think “socialism” would be a “good thing” for the United States with 51% saying it’s a “bad thing” for the country.
“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,” reports Gallup.
The surprising survey comes as countless Democratic presidential candidates -such as Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, and others- press for massive federal spending programs like Medicare for All.
Senator Warren has routinely called for a universal childcare program, free healthcare, and tuition-free college for all Americans during her 2020 campaign.
Senator Elizabeth Warren outlined her plan last month to offer free college tuition to all Americans while forgiving pre-existing student loan debt; admitting the expensive proposal would likely cost $1.25 trillion over the next decade.
“We got into this crisis because state governments and the federal government decided that instead of treating higher education like our public school system — free and accessible to all Americans — they’d rather cut taxes for billionaires and giant corporations and offload the cost of higher education onto students and their families,” writes Warren.
“Experts estimate my debt cancellation plan creates a one-time cost to the government of $640 billion. The Universal Free College program brings the total cost of the program to roughly $1.25 trillion over ten years,” she adds.
Warren’s proposal would provide cost-free tuition for public colleges and would cancel up to $50,000 in student loan debt for Americans earning under $100,000 per year.
