In a recent survey, conducted by the Victims of Communism, shocking results found that a vast majority of young Americans support socialism. Out of the 2,100 people polled, 70 percent of millennials are likely to vote socialist and one-third view communism as “favorable”—increasing by eight percentage points since 2018.
Moreover, 66 percent of all respondents cannot accurately define socialism.
