In poll after poll, young people are politically much further to the left of older Americans. According to Gallup, 52% of 18- to 34-year-olds have a positive view of socialism, while fewer, 47%, have a positive view of capitalism. (For comparison, more than two-thirds of people older than 55 have a positive view of capitalism.)
Oh. My. God. Those numbers are just shocking. Who could have possibly predicted such a schism, I mean apart from EVERYONE ON THE FUCKING PLANET WHO HAS BEEN PAYING ATTENTION TO LIFE.
