Whether the United States should move toward socialism is shaping up to be one of the defining issues of the 2020 election, and millennials and members of Generation Z have decidedly different views on the subject than previous generations of Americans.
Millennials, ages 23 to 38, and Generation Z, ages 18 to 22, are projected to make up 37 percent of the electorate in 2020, Axios reported.
Multiple polls released last year showed that a large percentage of these younger Americans support socialism.
A YouGov/Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation poll conducted in September found that 70 percent of millennials said they were either “extremely likely” or “somewhat likely” to vote for a socialist candidate.
A recent poll found 70% of Millennials are likely to vote for a socialist candidate. My takeaway here isn’t that younger Americans love socialism but rather that they feel today’s capitalism is failing them. pic.twitter.com/KptVmRLMlO
