New Poll Shows Americans Don’t Think Socialism is Incompatible with American Values

The poll revealed that 57 percent of voters “believe that socialism is incompatible with American values,” while just 29 percent said that it was compatible.

A Monmouth University survey released Monday found that the majority of American voters don’t think socialism is compatible with American values while just 10 percent of those polled viewed socialism in a positive light.

According to the poll, 57 percent of voters “believe that socialism is incompatible with American values,” while just 29 percent said that it was compatible.

The poll also found that 43 percent of voters have a negative view of socialism compared to 10 percent who viewed socialism in a positive light. Another 45 percent of voters said they had a neutral view.

“We shouldn’t ignore the possibility that ‘neutral’ could be a way for some Americans, especially Democrats, to couch their policy preferences without using a term that has historically negative connotations,” Monmouth pollster Patrick Murray told The Hill. “This is going to be a real challenge for left-leaning candidates in the 2020 presidential race. The party base seems to be saying, ‘We like your platform, just don’t use the word socialism to describe it’.”

This could spell trouble for the 2020 hopes of far-left progressive Democrats like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), as they have continued to push for more socialist policies since launching their campaigns.
