Despite the mainstream media’s obsession with Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, most Americans do not care for and do not want socialism in America.
A new NBC News poll showed only 18 percent of people view socialism favorably.
NBC News White House Correspondent Geoff Bennett shared some of the results from their recent poll on social media.
He tweeted, “New @NBCNews / @WSJ poll tested 11 different presidential characteristics. Most popular: An African American; a white man; a woman; and someone who is gay or lesbian. Least popular: A Muslim; someone over the age of 75; and a socialist. Just 18% view socialism positively.”
If only 18 percent like socialism, it’s probably because they understand exactly how disastrously it can become and do not want it to ruin the United States.
But check out this hot take, via Twitchy:
“My guess is 100 percent of the people who don’t want a socialist have zero idea what socialism actually means,” staff writer for the Atlantic, Jemele Hill, theorized.
Here’s how some people responded, via Twitchy:
The NBC News poll also asked participants how favorably they view President Trump. Here’s more, from NBC News:
The top groups approving of Trump: Republicans (88 percent), rural residents (60 percent), whites without college degrees (60 percent), men (54 percent) and whites overall (54 percent).
The top groups disapproving: African Americans (88 percent), Latinos (64 percent), women (61 percent), those ages 18-34 (57 percent), whites with college degrees (55 percent) and independents (51 percent).
Forty-one percent of registered voters say they will “definitely” or “probably” vote for Trump in 2020, versus 48 percent who say they will “definitely” or “probably” vote for the Democratic candidate.
Note: The author of this article has included commentary that expresses an opinion and analysis of the facts.
The most popular: An African American (a combined 87 percent of all voters say they are “enthusiastic” or “comfortable” with that characteristic), a white man (86 percent), a woman (84 percent), and someone who is gay or lesbian (68 percent — up from 43 percent in 2006).
The least popular: A Muslim (49 percent are enthusiastic or comfortable — up from 32 percent in 2015), someone over the age of75 (37 percent) and a socialist (25 percent).
And regarding socialism, just 18 percent of all Americans say they view the term positively, versus 50 percent who see it in a negative light.
The numbers for capitalism are almost the exact opposite: 50 percent positive, 19 percent negative.
