Capitalism versus Socialism
Poll confirms massive anti-capitalist shift in US public opinion
In periods of intense economic crisis, tranformations which normally require years or decades can take place in weeks or months. A new U.S. poll taken in early April astonishingly shows that U.S. adults under 30 are approximately evenly divided on the question of socialism-versus-capitalism. According to a telephone poll by Rasmussen 33 per cent of the under-30's prefer socialism, 37 percent prefer capitalism, and 30 per cent are undecided.
