Are Millennials Hopeless?

Recommended Posts

Submitted by Jim Quinn via The Burning Platform blog,

 

Of the 2,300 Americans polled by YouGov, 80% of baby boomers and 91% of the elderly agree with the statement that “communism was and still is a problem” in the world today. Millennials? Only 55%.

 

Furthermore, almost half of Americans between the ages of 16 to 20 said they would vote for a socialist, while 21% would go so far as to back a communist.

 

Capitalism, on the other hand, is viewed favorably by 64% of those over the age of 65, compared with only 42% of millennials.

 

In fact, more than half of millennials say the economic system works against them, while four out of 10 call for a “complete change” to ensure highest earners pay their fair share.

 

There’s a lack of historical perspective, according to the foundation, that the survey showed among a big chunk of the younger generation. For instance, a third of millennials say they believe more people were killed under George W. Bush than Joseph Stalin.
