For First Time In History, Democrats (Admit to Pollsters That They) View Socialism More Favorably Than Capitalism

I'm old enough to remember when saying that Democrats were socialists was officially racist, according to the Democrat Party communications operations and its partner, the Democrat/socialist media.

It was a "racial code-word," you see. A "dog whistle."

Now Democrats are proclaiming it themselves.

Does that make them racist?

Democrats More Positive About Socialism Than Capitalism by Frank Newport

47% of Democrats view capitalism positively, down from 56% in 2016

57% of Democrats now view socialism positively, little changed from 2010

Republicans very positive about capitalism; 16% positive on socialism

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- For the first time in Gallup's measurement over the past decade, Democrats have a more positive image of socialism than they do of capitalism. Attitudes toward socialism among Democrats have not changed materially since 2010, with 57% today having a positive view. The major change among Democrats has been a less upbeat attitude toward capitalism, dropping to 47% positive this year -- lower than in any of the three previous measures.

I wasn't aware that Democrats has long admitted to a favorable impression of socialism, which is why I'm now particularly angry at the media denying it all these years when Democrats have expressed near-60% pro-socialist leanings since Barack Obama's first year in office.

The big change here is the 9% drop in Democrat support of capitalism.
