In a new Fortune|SurveyMonkey poll, we find that, by and large, 84% of Americans view the U.S. as a capitalist nation, though it is mainly men and the older generations who tend to have a rosier view of the economic system.
- 76% of seniors 65+ have positive impressions of capitalism
- Just 56% of younger adults (18-24 year-olds) share this view
- 42% of men have a “very positive” impression of capitalism
- 18% of women share this impression
Younger Americans are more open to socialism than their older counterparts, but many don't know enough about the system to have an opinion.
- 37% of 25-34 year olds prefer socialism, just 15% among 65+
- 35% of 18-24 year olds and 38% of 35-44 year olds don’t know enough to say
