If Americans Oppose Socialism, Why Do they Keep Voting for It?
Some conservatives take comfort in a December Rasmussen/Heartland Institute poll which purports to show that Americans favor the free market over socialism by 75% to 11%. But if Americans overwhelmingly support capitalism, why do they keep voting for socialism? Do they even know what socialism is? Socialism isn’t tired-looking men in overalls, going to work in state-run factories… It’s reasonable to assume that part of Rasmussen’s pro-free market 75% voted for Biden’s socialism in the last election. Obviously, that includes the 57% of Democrats who say they’re down with economic freedom. They say they prefer capitalism to socialism, but identify with the party of Pelosi, Schumer, Gavin Newsom, de Blasio and the Squad.
