Harvard Poll: 59% Of Millennials Reject Socialism…
April 26, 2016
More than half of millennials recently surveyed by the Harvard Institute of Politics reject both capitalism and socialism, according to the poll’s results.
Perhaps surprisingly, socialism is even less popular than capitalism, with 59 percent rejecting the ideology embraced by Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, the favorite among millennials.
Just 51 percent of the 18- to 29-year-olds surveyed said they do not support capitalism.
Furthermore, Harvard student Jeff Metzger noted in Monday’s teleconference with reporters that distrust of capitalism breaks ideological bounds and shows an “alienation of the status quo.”
He said this is highlighted by the finding that even 49 percent of conservatives and 54 percent of Republicans polled do not support capitalism.
