Young People More Likely To Favor Socialism Than Capitalism: Pew

Alexander Eichler

Young people -- the collegiate and post-college crowd, who have served as the most visible face of the Occupy Wall Street movement -- might be getting more comfortable with socialism. That's the surprising result from a Pew Research Center poll that aims to measure American sentiments toward different political labels.

The poll, published Wednesday, found that while Americans overall tend to oppose socialism by a strong margin -- 60 percent say they have a negative view of it, versus just 31 percent who say they have a positive view -- socialism has more fans than opponents among the 18-29 crowd. Forty-nine percent of people in that age bracket say they have a positive view of socialism; only 43 percent say they have a negative view.

And while those numbers aren't very far apart, it's noteworthy that they were reversed just 20 months ago, when Pew conducted a similar poll. In that survey, published May 2010, 43 percent of people age 18-29 said they had a positive view of socialism, and 49 percent said their opinion was negative.

67171 I have friends that have a 100-inch wide plasma TV. They do EVERYTHING it tells them to. They think what it tells them to think.

They have no mind of their own. They are like empty shells of people.

7052 And, pray tell, what the frack are you? Because a person watches TV does not mean that they are brainwashed sheeple any more than you would be considered a a robotic drone who just regurgitates left-wing dogma and can't change viewpoints, or see both sides of an argument.

Maybe the people in question watch movie on Netflix or TCM, or even watch movies and TV shows on DVD-did you even think about that?
