Exclusive poll: Young Americans are embracing socialism

Generation Z has a more positive view of the word "socialism" than previous generations, and — along with millennials — are more likely to embrace socialistic policies and principles than past generations, according to a new Harris Poll given exclusively to Axios.

Why it matters: The word "socialism" does not carry the same stigma it did in the past, now that it has been resurrected by celebrity politicians like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Young people's political views often change as they grow older, but their support for socialistic policies is a sign that the old rules of politics are changing fast.

Gen Z and millennials are projected to make up 37% of the electorate in 2020, and what they're looking for in a presidential candidate is shifting.

  • The top three voting issues for Gen Z, according to the Harris poll, are mass shootings, racial equality, and immigration policy and treatment of immigrants.
  • Millennials' top issues are access to health care, global warming/climate change and mass shootings.
  • Gen X's top issues are: access to health care, terrorism/national security and the national debt — the same top issues for boomers and older.

Young Americans: we don't want government intrusion in our lives, so let's vote in socialism.

A guy I went to school with joined the Army straight out of High School because he was tired of everyone telling him what to do. He called home crying that someone stole his wallet and he wanted to go home

Sounds like Axios paid Harris to tell them what they want you to hear. All that's missing is an animal mascot and babes in bikinis.

Until it affects them personally of course.
