USA: American Youth favorable to Socialism

by Glauber Ataide

According to a survey published last December 28, by the Pew Research Center (, most young Americans from the ages of 18-29 have a positive view of socialism.

Although the difference is not much (49% have a positive view of socialism, while 43% have a negative view), the figures have changed from 20 months ago when 49% had a negative view.

The numbers also show a small difference for those in the lower income bracket($30,000 a year), in which 43% had a positive view of socialism, with 46% having a negative view. Among the African-American population, socialism is viewed much more favorable: 55% have a positive view, versus just 36% in the opposite direction.
