According to a new Rasmussen poll, just 53% of American adults believe that capitalism is better than socialism. 20% say that they prefer socialism, while 27% are unsure. While older adults are staunchly pro-capitalism, among young adults under that age of 30, socialism is essentially as popular as capitalism; 37% say they favor the latter and 33% the former.
