Poll: Most Voters Prefer Free Market System to Socialism

July 5, 2018 Updated: July 5, 2018

A new poll has revealed that a majority of Americans prefer a free market economic system over a socialist system.

The July 5 poll by Rassmussen found that 74% of likely U.S. voters preferred a free market economic system rather than a socialist system. In contrast, 13% think that socialism is a better system, economically. Another 13% were undecided.

The national survey was conducted by telephone and online over July 1 and 2.

The findings come after long-serving Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) lost his seat for reelection in a stunning upset to 28-year-old far-left political newcomer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Cortez is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America.
