A new poll revealed how the younger generation views key economic issues, such as the role of conservatism and socialism. An Axios/Momentive Poll was carried out June 11-15, 2021, and included a national sample of 2,309 adults. Out of all adults, 31% said they strongly disapprove of the way President Joe Biden is handling his job as president, while 27% strongly approved. The respondents said that the issues that mattered most to them are jobs and the economy, with health care coming in second. Out of all respondents, 57% of respondents said that they had a positive reaction to the word “capitalism,” while 36% said they had a negative response. Notably, men had a more positive response than women with 68% of men saying they had a positive reaction to the word and only 48% of women had a positive reaction to the word. When asked about their reactions to the world “socialism,” 52% of all respondents had a negative reaction, while 41% had a positive reaction. The reactions along gender lines were different, as well, with 59% of males responding negatively and only 46% of females.
