Are more Americans beginning to back socialism?


CHERYL: WELL TURNS OUT NOT JUST A NEW “FOX NEWS POLL” SHOWS MORE THAN A THIRD OF AMERICANS WOULD BE A GOOD THING. ONLY 2/3 OF THOSE UNDER 30 GIVING SOCIALISM A THUMBS UP. WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT? WE’VE GOT TO EXPLAIN THIS FOLKS. JOINING MEED TORE AT LARGE FOR REASON MAGAZINE, MAT WELCH. CAPRI CAFARO IS HERE AND WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS SHIFT THAT THESE, IT IS A YOUNGER SOCIALISM WOULD WORK IN THIS COUNTRY?>>I THINK PART OF IT IS THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT THE WORD SOCIALISM MEANS. OFTEN TIMES IN THE POLLS LAST FIVE YEARS, WHEN WE’VE SEEN THE GROWTH HAPPEN, DO YOU SUPPORT NATIONALIZING COMPANIES AND WORKERS CONTROLLING THE MEANS OF PRODUCTION, MY GOD, NO. WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT. SO BECAUSE THEY GREW UP IN ERA WHEN THE COLD WAR WAS OVER, WE NO LONGER HAVE THOSE FIGHTS ENTERPRISE ARGUMENT IN THE SAME WAY THEY WERE IN THE 1980s AND 1970s. BECAUSE OF THAT THE WORD LOST ITS TOXICITY. SCANDINAVIA WORKS. THEY HAVE THAT INACCURATE MORE CHERYL: WHAT HAPPENS TO AN LOOK A OCEANIST DICTATOR IN THE CASE OF VENEZUELA. BUT AT THE SAME TIME, LOOK AT OCASIO-CORTEZ, THIS YOUNG DEMOCRAT HERE UNSEATED VERY WELL-KNOWN HOUSE DEMOCRAT, ONE OF THE LEADERS ON THE PARTY ON A PLATFORM OF SOCIALISM.>>LOOK AT WHAT THAT DISTRICT LOOKS LIKE. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THE BRONX, COMMUNITIES IN NEW YORK CITY WHERE YOU KNOW, THEY QUOTE, UNQUOTE, DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST MOVEMENT HAS BEEN VERY I AGRAY WITH YOU, PEOPLE DON’T THEY SEE TWO THINGS. MILLENIALS, THAT CAPITALISM FAILED THEM. THEY HAVE DEGREES THEY PAID SO MUCH MONEY FOR, THEY’RE IN DEBT, WORKING LOW WAGE JOBS, SOMEHOW THAT’S NOT WHAT IT IS. CHERYL: MILLENIALS AND YOUNGER GENERATION UNDERNEATH THEM WE’RE TALKING ABOUT. KAYLEIGH, WHAT DOES THE HAPPENING IN THE DEMOCRAT PARTY BUT PRESIDENT TRUMP WHOSE I DON’T WANT TO GO INTO THE WHYS, BUT THAT WILL AFFECT 53% SAY HE IS NOT DOING A GOOD JOB. ONLY 45% SAY THAT HE IS.>>WELL, WE BELIEVE HIS APPROVAL NUMBERS ARE FAR HIGHER THAN THAT WE DO BELIEVE IN THE SO-CALLED, TRUMP, HIDDEN TRUMP VOTER DIDN’T A PLUS ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL, WITH REGARD TO THE SOCIALISM POINT, I AGREE WITH BOTH CAPRI AND MATT, THEY MAKE REALLY EXCELLENT POINTS. MATT IN PARTICULAR. OUR CHAIRWOMAN IS VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT GETTING A FREE ENTERPRISE ARGUMENT OUT THERE, COMBATING THE SOCIALISM STRAIN WE’RE SEEING AMONG MILLENIALS. I WAS ON A COLLEGE CAMPUS, A LAW SCHOOL CAMPUS NOT TOO LONG AGO, I CAN TELL YOU COLLEGE CAMPUSES ARE HUBS FOR RADICALISM. MIGHT SOUND GREAT IN THE FACULTY WE HAVE ARTICULATE OUR ARGUMENT TO MILLENIALS AND MAKE SURE WE DON’T FALL INTO THAT BERNIE SANDERS TRAP. CHERYL: COLLEGE CAMPUSES RADICALISM, HAPPENED DURING THE VIETNAM WAR, HAPPENED IN THE0’S. IT WAS NOT A ECONOMIC RADICALISM. THAT IS WHAT IS CURIOUS AND DIFFERENT.>>LAST 10 YEARS, ISSUES LIT A FIRE UNDER PROGRESSIVES TENDED MORE TOWARD ECONOMIC POLICIES. CITIES LIKE SEATTLE AND PARTS OF MANHATTAN AND ELSEWHERE BECAUSE AS CIVIL LIBERTARIAN THAT BUMS ME OUT. THEY COULD BE ENDING THE DRUG WAR OTHER ISSUES, BUT NOT WHERE THE BEATING HEART IS RIGHT NOW. TARIFFS AND TRADE WARS ARE EASY TO WIN. WE DON’T HAVE BEATING HEART OF SOMEONE WHO IS EVERY DAY MAKING THE CASE FOR CAPITALISM IN A WAY THAT — CHERYL: CAPRI, PRESIDENT TRUMP, HE OWNED THIS RECOVERY. HE HAS SAID THIS IS HIS RECOVERY, HIS ECONOMY. THE MARKETS ARE HIS BUT GO AHEAD. YOU COULD MAKE THE ARGUMENT IS STARTED A WHILE AGO. WE’LL LEAVE THAT. CHERYL: YEAH.>>YOU BY THINK THAT A COUPLE OF THINGS. NUMBER ONE I THINK THE REASON MILLENIALS TAKEN TO THE IDEA SO MUCH IS BECAUSE WE ARE IN A CULTURE OF INSTANT THAT PEOPLE JUST WANT STUFF, NOT NECESSARILY HAVE TO WORK FOR IT AND THAT IS A SYSTEMIC PROBLEM THAT WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH. I CAN TELL YOU FROM MY DEMOCRATS IN PLACE LIKE OHIO, THE BEST WAY, THE BEST TICKET TO ECONOMIC JUSTICE IS A JOB. PEOPLE DO NOT WANT HANDOUTS. THEY WANT THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK AND DEMOCRATS NEED TO SEIZE ON THAT MORE THAN THEY NEED TO SEIZE ON SOCIALISM. CHERYL: THEY PROBABLY DO, KAYLEIGH, ONE OF THE PIECES I FOUND INTERESTING CAME TO THE ECONOMY QUESTION WITH THE LATEST “FOX NEWS POLL” WE GOT, VERY EXPANSIVE POLL, CONDITION OF THE ECONOMY. DEMOCRATS TALKED ABOUT THE CONDITION OF THE ECONOMY, 30% THINK IT IS GOOD, THE REPUBLICANS THOUGH, 73%. IF YOU’RE A TRUE CONSERVATIVE, THIS, EVEN REPUBLICAN, YOU ARE GOING TO RUN ON BASIS OF THE ECONOMY AND JOBS AND FREE MARKETS AND FRANKLY KEEPING THE GOVERNMENT OUT OF YOUR BACKYARD?>>THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. THIS ECONOMY IS ROARING. THAT IS THANKS TO PRESIDENT TRUMP. HE REVERSED THE DISASTEROUS 4.1% GROWTH IN THE LAST QUARTER, AND HE HAS MAJORITY SUPPORT WHEN WELL. BUT THIS PRESIDENT HAD UNIQUE ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE WITH BLUE-COLLAR WORKERS WHICH SOMETHING NO PRESIDENT SINCE RONALD REAGAN WAS ABLE TO THIS PRESIDENT MADE US THE PARTY OF BLUE-COLLAR WORKERS. DEMOCRATS USED TO OWN THAT VOTE. I THINK IT IS BENEFICIAL FOR FACTORY WORKERS TO VOTE FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND THEY’RE SEEING IT. CHERYL: LOOKING AT HEAD SPINNING IN THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION WHEN TRUMP WON MICHIGAN. THERE WERE JAWS DROPPING EVERYWHERE. HILLARY CLINTON IGNORED THE STATE. GENERATION MOVED TOWARDS SOCIALISM. WHAT ABOUT THOSE MORE ON THE LIBERTARIAN SIDE? IS THERE A YOUNGER UNDER CURRENT TO THAT GROUP OF OUR –>>FOR SURE. SAW THIS IN THE POLLING IN 2016 FOR GARY JOHNSON AND LIBERTARIAN CANDIDATES, INCLUDING GARY DOING WELL AMONG YOUNGER VOTERS. YOUNGER VOTERS MORE THAN ANY COHORT DON’T WANT TO BELONG TO THE OLD PARTIES.>>I THINK LIBERTARIAN IS INTERESTING. WE NEED TO GET BEYOND THIS. WE ARE BUILT ON A ECONOMY AND SOCIAL I HAVE IS NOT APART THAT. CHERYL: WHERE IS JUDGE NAPOLITANO WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT




Comments
  1. LOL Um… socialism has been a part of America forever… Public schools, the military, police, fire departments, student loans, medicare, social security, food stamps… FOX spin bullshit

  2. NEVER socialism! The economy is booming with the longest bull stock market. Those took the poll were lazy crazy super liberals Trump haters who obstruct resist and protest all over who tried to fight back as more and more #walkaway

  3. This is absolute insanity if true.
    I personally don't believe polls.
    These morons see the failure of socialism around the world and learn nothing from it.
    As far as these millennials and their degrees being no good, if they would take something besides a worthless political science degree they probably could get a good job.
    But they don't believe in earning their own money, they want to steal from those who do work.

  4. Many Americans back socialized health care, but I don't know any who want to see a socialist economy…this is lies and propaganda from FOX…if you support our police department, you support a socialist institution! LOL…dumbasses

  5. You guys still don't understand the difference between socialism and democratic socialism. Most people are not looking to uproot capitalism, we just want to see it practiced responsibly, whether it be regulating companies who pollute or preventing monopolies like Google or Amazon from creating too much influence. Free college isn't shit compared to the needless mountains of money we throw at the military sticking our toes in countries we don't belong in.

  6. Socialism is a diseases that when is infected in to the peoples mind there is not a cure for it. It's the end of the free society as you know it.

  7. It's because more Americans want to be held at gunpoint by having their money over to the government wake up America

  8. Is IKEA owned by the Swedish Government? You can have private companies making profits in Sweden while the Government is providing universal health care and education. Imagine the greatest country on Earth can't figure how to do that? Can find 640 billion for guns and bombs, but can't find money to educate their people and provide affordable health care. Not so great.

  9. Young people don't clean their rooms and expect their mom to cook for them everyday. So of course socialism sounds good.

  10. Polls are lies to try to socially engineer people's opinions. The only reason people may be communist in this country is because we let in too many stupid animals and we don't educate our citizens. Watch, The dumbing down of America and listen to Bill Cooper.

  11. Must be the younger people they interviewed..they think it means "to be more social" or "free everything"…so much ignorance today. Those of us that know..won't lean left. 🇺🇸MAGA🇺🇸

  12. Blahahaha Fake Fox is hitting the reprogramming button. You people we will never trust media again. Freedom over RULERS and subjects..

  13. I don't think so you are crazy or just dumb if you think this is going to be a socialism country you wrong an f those ahole college kids

  14. Maybe it's because crony capitalism has destroyed the American dream…..the inequality and wage gap continues to increase….corporations have more pull in politics than the people do…..hmmmm….wonder why….

  15. If you're a Socialist, and not just a supporter of some social programs.

    Better watch your back, if Antifa ever beats the Right, then Antifa is coming for you and the liberals next.

  16. Hell yes , at least commies do not cut taxes, borrow soon to be $31 TRILLION , send our jobs overseas and never pay it back ! This year we real Americans will pay more to cover the interest on the REPUBLICAN NATIONAL DEBT (800 BILLION ) than we pay for the Military ! ! ! AIRBORNE ! GOD, Fuck all Trump Voters and All Republicans.

  17. What is this cnn, now fox news doing fake polls for socialism.. FAKE NEWS. PRESIDENT TRUMP 2020 KEEP AMERICA GREAT!

  18. Actually most millennials are moving away from socialism and even liberalism. There's now a movement towards conservatism.

  19. 1/3 of the people? Younger voters? Must be the young ones that think socialism means free living. Get your young asses to work. Obama ain't around anymore.

  20. socialism = people who dont understand basic Econ. people dont even know what capitalism is anymore . voluntary trade

  21. Never in a million years will Americans back socialism we fought too many wars to keep America free and we will fight till death to keep America free and communism out of this country and you damn socialist can all leave this country pack your bags and get the hell out go to Venezuela Brazil anywhere but get the hell out of the United States we don't want you here

  22. If there is more Americans backing this evil form of governing then America is more dumber than I could have ever imagined. I blame first the liberal leftist teaching our children in our public school systems, and secondly I blame the professors at the universities where they finish indoctrinating them. We have a young generation in America that accepts socialism as a good idea and or communism, that is one scary thought. I am afraid this nation is headed right for a big explosion, the left has the youth so worked up, worked up into a frenzy and ready to attack anyone and anything that doesn't see everything the way they do. As a veteran of the United States Army I took an oath to protect this nation and even though I am no longer active that oath is ingrained into my heart and I shall defend this great Republic until my last breath upon this soil.

  23. The people who want socialism are so stupid. They wouldn’t even last a Day in a socialist country and that’s a fact.

  24. Socialism  are the roads and sidewalks you
    use everyday, its also the school and the hospital you depend on, its the
    police and the army that keeps you, its the lights at night so you can see your
    way home, its the water to your home and the shit that is piped out of your
    home. Socialism is the internet and the free press, its also your right to
    vote.  Remember those that speak ill of socialism want to harm you, they
    want to take from you.  They are greed and hate, the core ideals of conservatism.

  25. No no no no no no no no no no. Socialism is everything that not American. No freedom, no upward mobility, no life choices. Even far left people will not want rhis once they know what it really is. CAN NOT BELIEVE OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM HAS GOTTEN THIS BAD

  26. Socialism won't happen until robotics take over completely.Untill then we are just going to haft to get a job and get off the couch and put down the cheesepuff you bought with EBT free stuff can't be given if no one works.

  27. Those who have been vulnerable to the dumbing down process seem inclined to make bad decisions, and some back fools like Bernie Sanders. Now, that’s dumb.

  28. Slowly raise the minimum wage to $11.00. It's not even a real raise. With inflation that's what people made in 1968. Trump cut the taxes in a big way on corporations. What he should have done was cut taxes more for the middle class and poor. Made the minimum wage move to $11.00. BOOM!! people have money to spend…. millions of people. Not just the top 10%. At 7$ people don't even pay taxes. At $11 they do. More tax revenue. It's called the velocity of money. People spend almost every dime they have… plus use credit. The more money they have the more they spend. If you work for say, MSM making 30k a week or whatever… . you think the y spend every dime? At some point you have enough money. lol If you want a real booming economy the masses need spending power not the people who already own 10 yachts.

  29. Shanica Johnson ,a CBS news producer, released a bombardment of racist tweets.
    Why is this woman still a Producer for CBS?
    She is a despicable woman.

  30. Simple reason America is turning left…greedy out of control capitalists…this is what happens when you create and feed off a poor and disenfranchised class…interesting Russia has turned right…for them, been there, done that and it didn't work! 🤑🤑🤑

  31. Time to revisit Cooperative Capitalism…every worker is a shareholder…not a new construct, been around for two hundred years. 💰💰💰

  32. It’s all the Mexican anchor babies and their illegal alien parents trying to turn our beloved country into a shithole. They will never be American. Sooner or later, we will have to round them up and say adios amigos.

  33. Young people have always been more left…until they have to get a job and pay taxes to support all the freeloaders.

  34. Medicare for everyone! College for everyone! A house for everyone! A chicken in every pot! Everyone gets her own pony! And a unicorn! And a rainbow! Not just any rainbow, but a double rainbow all the way! Gimme gimme gimme! I don't want to WORK and EARN all that stuff, when the government, the wonderful wonderful government, can just give it to me! BESIDES, I HAVE A RIGHT TO IT! AND EVERYONE ELSE HAS THE RESPONSIBILITY TO GIVE IT TO ME FREEEEE! Socialism done right! Those dummies in the Soviet Union, China, Vietnam, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, etc didn't know how to do socialism right! LITERALLY HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS DEAD OR IMPRISONED AND EVERYONE ELSE MISERABLE in those places, but not here! By golly, we're going to do socialism right, and everyone's going to be happy happy happy! And if you say anything to oppose it, you're a racist, islamophobic, homophobic, xenophobic, sexist, misogynistic dodo bird who doesn't care about the poor and who has no respect for me and my safe space!

  35. Socialism is a form of communism. Goes against American values and way of Life .
    Just another idealogy to spread communism.

  36. Hmm seems fox never asked me to do this poll. So here my answer NO I do not support socialism at all. Fox news needs to start doing polls when working Americans get off work to help answer these polls.

  37. Only the stupid ones.the ones that go for any trend thats hot at the moment or the youtube tide pods .but all the others know socialism will destroy the United States and the great depression will begin

  38. Hell NO! We don’t want Socialism. Those who want it, don’t understand what it is. Communism with a pretty name!

  39. Ms. Ortiz is a female Obama and we already had one of those. All she talks about is free handouts. Who will pay for all the freebies?

  40. BEST clean out the rubbish! Clean out the humanities & social studies & social – sciences sections of the so-called Universities where the POSTMODERNISTS & MARXISTS & DECONSTRUCTORS RESIDE who are poisoning our youths minds! De-Fund the LOT & get them into the unemployment line & fast!!

  41. "Socialism promises the government will give you everything you want but when implemented, leaves you wanting everything you need"

  42. Wait until all those hollywood asshol es have to SHARE their money with LAZY MILLENIALS.See how fast their tune changes.

  43. Blame obama for bringing in illegals and foreigners to ursurp millenial hires not to mention the clintons selling usa,out to china.

  44. Too much socialism is bad for the economy and for individuals' rights. Healthcare costs are high because people are using insurance wrong, its supposed to be only for an emergency not regular routine checkups. You don't buy car insurance to cover the cost of oil changes, but thats what people are doing with health insurance. Because people are using health insurance this way, you are adding the cost of paying the insurance company on top of the medical expenses. If a medical center doesn't accept insurance then they can charge you a lot less for their services.

  45. They have scared (yet so satisfying to watch) faces like "How the hell is 36% of our society not brainwashed and think for themselves??"

  46. More Americans are more accepting of it now than ever because they realize it is just a scare tactic to sway votes and they realize we currently have over 75 socialistic programs here and no country is 100% socialist and every country has some form of socialism.

  47. Most of the young useful idiots don't understand the evil of socialism.Sanders looks like he is extremely mentally ill.
