At the same time, capitalism's favorability rating among those in Generation Z and millennials is declining, dropping by 6 and 8 points respectively from 2018, according to the fourth annual Report on U.S. Attitudes Toward Socialism, Communism, and Collectivism.

"50 percent of Millennials say they are "somewhat likely" and 20 percent of Millennials say they are "extremely likely" to vote for a socialist candidate, doubling from 10 percent in 2018, Americans overall are more hesitant about voting for a "democratic socialist" than they were previous year (53 percent "never" or "hesitant" in 2019 versus 47 percent in 2018)".

The survey also found about half of millennials (50%) and Gen Z (51%) were unfavorable toward capitalism.

"When we don't educate our youngest generations about the historical truth of 100 million victims murdered at the hands of communist regimes over the past century, we shouldn't be surprised at their willingness to embrace Marxist ideas", Ms. Smith said in a statement. A solid majority of Baby Boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) and Gen-Xers (those born between 1965 and 1980) still have favorable views of Capitalism. We need to redouble our efforts to educate America's youth about the history of communist regimes and the dangers of socialism today. About 44 percent of Generation X said they were somewhat or extremely likely to vote for a socialist candidate.

While 88 percent of Baby Boomers and members of the Silent Generation believe China is a communist country and not a democratic country, only 57 percent of Generation Z members and 62 percent of Millennials hold the same view, the survey noted. Comparatively, roughly 33 percent of millennials view communism favorably, while 35 percent said they liked marxism.

Interestingly, the poll - conducted between September 6 and September 13, and released on Monday - found the likelihood of Americans voting for a Democratic socialist has decreased since past year.

Sanders has called himself a "Democratic Socialist", and has said that the country should focus on an economic bill of rights, such as the right to healthcare, affordable housing, racial equality, a clean environment and a living wage.

But perceptions of communism vary widely across generations; for instance, 15 percent of millennials said the world would be better off if the Soviet Union still existed, and Gen Z is more likely to think global terrorism has killed more people than communism in the past 60 years.
