With extreme left organizations such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter calling for an end to capitalism and exerting considerable influence in American politics, a new poll suggests their opinions are very much in the minority.
The Western Journal explains:
A vast majority of American likely voters have an unfavorable view of socialism, and a plurality view Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York unfavorably, according to a new poll.
A survey conducted earlier this month by Rasmussen Reports and The Heartland Institute, a conservative think tank, found that the kinds of policies touted by Democrats such as Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont are not popular among a majority of voters.
Unpopular, in fact, might be an understatement.
Socialism is actually less popular than Congress, which currently enjoys an approval rating of 15 percent, according to the most recent Gallup survey on the matter.
When asked which was better economic system, free market or socialism, only 11% chose socialism.
