This is how our educational system has failed America: A new poll finds that most Democrats would be happy to vote for a socialist.
The results came from a new Hill-Harris X poll released this week.
According to the survey, 75 percent of Democrat voters said they would support a candidate who willingly called themselves a socialist, while only 26 percent of Republicans and 36 percent of independents agreed.
The worst results came from the younger voters, many of whom would throw their support behind a socialist, proving that our system of education is working specifically against America.
The Hill continued:
Seventy-four percent of those aged 18-34 said they would back a candidate with the tag, compared to 52 percent of those aged 35-49 and 30 percent of those aged 50-64.
It didn’t get any better overall. 48 percent said they would vote for a socialist while 52 percent said they would not.
This is a sad commentary. It should be 100 percent would not vote for a socialist, granted, but at the very least support for socialists should not breach 20 percent in the United States of America.
The Hill-HarrisX survey was conducted online among 523 registered voters between Nov. 1 and Nov. 2. The margin of error for the full sampling is plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.
Gallup polling also found similar results in May by finding 47 percent saying they would vote for a socialist.
Naturally, the un-American Democrat Party is increasingly all in for the communists.
As political figures espousing socialist ideas have gained popularity among their party in recent years, about three in four Democrats (74%) say they would support a self-identified socialist, up from 59% in 2015. This increase may partly be the result of Sanders’ 2016 campaign, in which he touted some socialist ideas and had a solid performance in the primaries.
You can’t be an American and a socialist. The two are mutually exclusive.
