“The poll comes as the House has become imbued with a vocal contingent of socialists and those who support socialist priorities.”
The socialist takeover of the Democratic party is nearly complete. According to a new poll, a majority of registered Democratic voters now prefer socialism to capitalism.
The establishment wing of the party is already past retirement age, and the AOC wing is on the rise.
Ronn Blitzer reports at the FOX Business Network:
Majority of registered Democratic voters now prefer socialism to capitalism, Fox News poll finds
A new Fox News poll showed that more Democrats favor socialism over capitalism, in a sharp reversal from just a year and a half ago.
The poll, taken between Aug. 7-10, showed that 59% of registered Democratic voters who participated had a positive view of socialism, compared to just 49% who felt that way about capitalism.
In February 2020, when the question was last asked, 50% of Democrats who participated said they had a favorable view of capitalism, with just 40% saying the same about socialism.
The poll showed that 44% of Democrats had an unfavorable view of capitalism, and 31% had a negative view of socialism.
Of the Republicans polled, 67% viewed capitalism favorably, and 8% had a favorable view of socialism.
The trend toward socialism among Democrats comes at a time when members of Congress such as self-described democratic socialists Rep. Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., have had a growing influence on Democratic politics.
Zachary Halschak of the Washington Examiner notes that you can’t discuss this development without mentioning the rest of the squad:
The poll comes as the House has become imbued with a vocal contingent of socialists and those who support socialist priorities. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York was elected in 2018 after a shocking primary upset and has since championed policies such as “Medicare for All” and the Green New Deal.
Ocasio-Cortez and Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts made waves after entering office, with the self-proclaimed “Squad” having outsize influence within the party and attracting much media attention, at times to the chagrin of party leadership.
Reps. Jamaal Bowman of New York and Cori Bush of Missouri, both members of the Democratic Socialists of America, were sworn into Congress after last year’s election.
This means that Democratic candidates are now going to pander even harder to the far left.
