POLL: Will the US become a socialist country?

JUNE 10, 2019

A Harris poll for “Axios on HBO” finds that socialism is gaining popularity: 4 in 10 Americans say they would prefer living in a socialist country over a capitalist one.

Socialism is losing its Soviet-era stigma, especially among women. Popular Democratic socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders are bringing new life and meaning to the term.

55% of women between 18 and 54 would prefer to live in a socialist country than a capitalist country.

But a majority of men prefer to live in a capitalist country.

With the baby boomers giving way to a new breed of Americans made up mostly of migrants from Latin America and refugees from Middle Eastern countries, will the US end up being a socialist country?
