A new poll suggests socialism is becoming normalized within the democrat party.
A Gallup poll released on Sunday shows 57-percent of democrat respondents view socialism positively.
For comparison, 16-percent of republicans polled had a positive outlook on socialism.
In the same poll, young Americans are more-likely to favor the political ideology than those who are older.
Many analysts predict this perspective was best explained by Senator Bernie Sanders’ (D-VT.) surge in the 2016 election, acknowledging he was a progressive candidate with popular support among many young voters.
