Stunning: Nearly 70% of Democrats believe socialism is good for America

Stunning: Nearly 70% of Democrats believe socialism is good for America

It would appear that Democrats haven’t been paying much attention to the video news clips coming out of Venezuela lately, or perhaps they’re responding to the Trump economy, by simply latching on to the concept of socialism as a counter to the Presidents booming economy or anything that makes the President look good.

One would imagine if the President suddenly exposed Bernie’s believe in socialism, deranged Democrats would suddenly switch and be for capitalism, that’s how demented Democrats have become lately.

Still regardless of their motives behind the Gallup poll, one thing is certain, as of this moment 70% of Democrats say “some form of socialism” would be a “good thing” for the U.S.

However a majority of 51% of Americans who apparently aren’t suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, say embracing socialism would be a bad thing for the country.

Compare that number with just 25% of Democrats agreeing with the majority stating that some form of socialism would be “a bad thing for the country as a whole.”

The poll which was released on Monday also surveyed Republicans and found that among that group over 84% said that embracing some form of socialism would be bad for the U.S., while a plurality of independents, roughly 48%, said the same.

The dilemma for leaders within the Democratic Party is to appear to be in control of those extremists within the party who’ve advocated everything from dismantling our entire economic infrastructure on a far-out adolescent proposal dubbed “The Green New Deal” to restructuring our entire healthcare system with something called “Medicare For All” which happens to the brainchild of Socialist and Presidential contender Bernie Sanders. His proposal would in effect displace over 150 million individuals currently benefiting from their private employer sponsored health insurance plans, to a government controlled healthcare system, with an estimated cost of over $33 trillion dollars, which by all accounting estimates would be virtually impossible to fund.

These insane proposals are now a part of Democratic talking points by a majority of Presidential candidates, regardless if they’re officially sanctioned or not.

Most critical thinking individuals assume that if a Democratic candidate should win in 2020, the Trump tax cuts would be rescinded, taxes across the board would rise dramatically; restrictive mandates would once again be imposed on businesses, and the immigration issue would continue to be ignored, and most assuredly our 2nd Amendment would be under siege.

Of course House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is attempting to spin the facts, regardless of what most Americans are actually witnessing in real time, stating “I do reject socialism as an economic system. If people have that view, that’s their view. That is not the view of the Democratic Party.”

The survey, which was conducted April 17-30 and had a margin of error of 6%, marked even more enthusiastic support for socialism among Democrats than in Gallup’s 2018 survey on the same subject.

Then Democrats favored socialism by 57% compared to the latest survey of 70% which also marks the first time Democrats have a more favorable view of socialism than capitalism.

However another poll, this one conducted by Fox in January found that 40% of Democrats thought that socialism was a “good thing” for “the United States, while 34% of Democrats thought it was a “bad thing.”

In yet another poll on the subject, this one conducted by a GOP firm called  Public Opinion Strategies found Democrats by a margin of 77 to 19% favored more socialism within the U.S.
