Harris Poll: Younger Americans More Likely Than Others To Embrace Socialism

Recent polls show an increasing number of young Americans support socialism as some claim the Democratic party is moving farther and farther left.

According to a Harris poll given to Axios, Millennials and Generation Z are more likely than older Americans to embrace Socialism.

Nearly three-fourths of those Millennials and Generation Z adults surveyed believed the government should provide healthcare for all.

Over 67% think there should be free college for all, and nearly half would prefer to live in a socialist country.

These numbers are alarming to many experts and even moderate politicians given the same people are projected to make up 37% of the constituency in the 2020 presidential election.

According to the same poll, the issues Millennials and Generation Z categorizes as a top priority include but are not limited to racial inequality, mass shootings, immigration, and climate change.

The poll was conducted late last month and surveyed over 2,000 adults.
