It’s Bernie and AOC’s Democrat party now.
A new poll finds that a majority of registered Democrat voters now prefer socialism over capitalism.
The far left wing of the party has convinced the majority that everything can be free if you just make ‘the rich’ pay for it.
Of course, that’s not how the world works, but when has reality ever stopped the radical left?

Majority of registered Democratic voters now prefer socialism to capitalism, Fox News poll finds
A new Fox News poll showed that more Democrats favor socialism over capitalism, in a sharp reversal from just a year and a half ago.
The poll, taken between Aug. 7-10, showed that 59% of registered Democratic voters who participated had a positive view of socialism, compared to just 49% who felt that way about capitalism.
In February 2020, when the question was last asked, 50% of Democrats who participated said they had a favorable view of capitalism, with just 40% saying the same about socialism.
The poll showed that 44% of Democrats had an unfavorable view of capitalism, and 31% had a negative view of socialism.
Of the Republicans polled, 67% viewed capitalism favorably, and 8% had a favorable view of socialism.
The trend toward socialism among Democrats comes at a time when members of Congress such as self-described democratic socialists Rep. Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., have had a growing influence on Democratic politics. Sanders, as chair of the Senate Budget Committee, has been leading a charge to pass a $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill that he says is aimed at addressing wealth inequality.
This means that Democrat candidates are going to work even harder to court the far left during elections.
The next time there’s a Democrat presidential primary, the majority of the candidates are going to sound a lot more like AOC than Hillary Clinton.
If you think they sound crazy now, just wait.
