Of course, universal basic income is a euphemism for wealth redistribution.

66% Of College Democrats Support A Universal Basic Income

Two-thirds of college Democrats support a universal basic income such as that proposed by presidential candidate Andrew Yang, which would give $1,000 a month to every American over the age of 18, according to a new College Pulse survey of 2,000 students.

A universal basic income is not as popular among Republican students, though, as only 18 percent responded that they’d back it.

Altogether, 53 percent of college students said they supported a universal basic income, according to the survey.

The survey also found that there were some stark racial divides on the idea, as only 47 percent of white students said they supported a universal basic income, compared to 62 percent of non-white students.

Of the students who rejected the idea, 34 percent said they oppose it because “people should work for their money,” 30 percent said it’s because the program “would cost too much,” and 8 percent said “people would be irresponsible with the money.”

“Students’ reasons for opposing a universal basic income also differ along political lines,” according to a College Pulse summary of its survey. “While half (51 percent) of Republicans who oppose the plan say people should work for their money, just 12 percent of Democrats agree. Democrats are more likely to say they oppose the plan because it would cost too much (35 percent).”
