Title: Capitalism Is Being Rejected by Young Americans in Huge Numbers

In the two years since Senator Bernie Sanders’s campaign for president, the image of capitalism among young Americans has taken a dramatic hit, a new poll has indicated. Less than half, 45 percent, of Americans aged between 18 and 29 have a positive view of capitalism, according to a Gallup poll released Monday.

When Sanders, a self-identified socialist, challenged Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination for president two years ago, the figure stood at 57 percent, up 1 percent from 2012 but down 11 from 2010. For the first time, more young Americans now have a positive view of socialism than they do capitalism, even as support for socialism among the group has remained steady at 51 percent.

The poll was taken as the mainstream Democratic Party encounters an increasing progressive movement that has celebrated socialism and heavily criticized aspects of capitalism. It was Sanders, an independent senator, who popularized many of the essential tenants of socialism during his insurgent campaign for president. His talking points, notably his slamming of the proportion of wealth owned by richest 1 percent of Americans, and his policy ideas, including advocating for a Medicare-for-all program, particularly resonated among young people.

Although Clinton ultimately triumphed in the 2016 primaries, Sanders won the youth vote over the former secretary of state by wide margins. Indeed, more young people voted for Sanders than Clinton and now-President Donald Trump combined.

It is not just young people who are increasingly rejecting capitalism, however. The Gallup poll also indicated that just 47 percent of Democrats, or those who lean Democrat, have a positive view of capitalism, compared to 57 percent who look favorably upon socialism.

The poll was based on interviews with 1,505 adults and conducted between July 30 and August 5 with a margin of error of 3 percentage points.

Sanders’s Revolution Continues

Sanders may have been defeated but his ideas have increasingly been embraced by the Democratic mainstream. Still, his movement, continued both by himself and the progressive group Our Revolution, has often come into direct conflict with establishment Democrats during primary elections for the 2018 midterms.

The most famous product of Sanders’s “revolution” to date has been Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America who shocked Democratic politics in June when defeating long-time Congressman from New York and potential next House speaker Joe Crowley.

Her victory sparked an immediate conflict with current House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, whom the 28-year-old Ocasio-Cortez refused to say if she would back as speaker should Democrats regain control of the House. Ocasio-Cortez has also joined Sanders in endorsing and campaigning for progressive candidates. However, despite their own popularity and the growing rejection of capitalism among young Americans and Democrats, their record in persuading voters to back similarly minded candidates has so far been decidedly mixed.

And, while the views among certain demographics have shifted notably, overall a majority of Americans retain a positive view of capitalism (56 percent) with only a minority (37 percent) continuing to view socialism favorably.

HA!!!

Chyeah...

OR...you'll pay them with...a cup of coffee. Socialists should be ALL FOR that, right?

Btw Hank, I made a GREAT home made pizza the other night.

Cheated a bit, but it's the first one I've made in over 20 years. Thanks for the motivation.

Fresh tomatoes from the garden. Simmered it for a few hours. (Needed a pinch of sugar. Fresh cheeses. Fresh basil. Fresh tyme. Bought the pizza dough at the supermarket, let it rise for 24 hours. Didn't roll out the dough, instead kneaded it toward the edges of the pizza pan (No, I didn't use a stone).

Revved up the pre-heated convection oven to the max (500+ degrees)...and baby-sat it for about 12 minutes (yeah, far cry from your 900 degree puppy, and 90 seconds flash.)

The verdict was an "A" rated pizza. Managed a nice char on the crust, cheese and sauce. Nothing like a fresh home-made pizza my friend!

Fresh cheeses.

Did you try to shred the mozzarella or did you just thin slice it instead??

Well, there ya go - hurray and congrats!

Coincidentally, I knocked out a Margherita Napolitana + Pepperoni (so not a real Margherita) tonight, using some really old dough left over from a week ago in the fridge. It was extremely loose and fragile to form up because of its age but it worked fine with gentle handling; was a little nervous launching it into the oven because it was so thin and delicate (spots on the bare crust were translucent), but nothing tore - whew. Nothing like the same dough at the "official" 24 hours; it was chewier but had a deeper flavor due to a week's worth of yeast farts workin' on it. I really need to get my Italian yeast spores cultured and get going with that.......

And yeah, rolling pins stay in the drawer when I'm makin' pizza, too.

Again, welcome back to the fetish.
