Socialism gaining popularity among young Americans


If you thought it was just rhetoric when conservatives say they fear socialism is gaining a foothold in the United States. It's not. There are real numbers behind those fears now.

According to the Pew Research Center, (36%) of adults ages 18 to 29 say there are other countries that are better than the U.S. U-h political science professor Jacquie Baly simply shakes her head.

"You see a lot of the younger generations pick up on socialism because of the snippets they see on television," Baly stated.

And because of what they in the classroom. But Baly says as they get older, they do, hopefully get smarter.

"Once you start making money, your views change. Once you apply the theories you were taught, you realize they don't work," Baly explained.

There's also this; nearly half (47%) of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents under 30 say there are other countries that are better than the U.S.
