Socialism shoots up in the polls

Socialism shoots up in the polls April 16, 2009

From The Washington Post:

According to a Rasmussen poll released last week, 37 percent of Americans under age 30 prefer capitalism, 33 percent prefer socialism and 30 percent are undecided. Among all Americans, 53 percent prefer capitalism, 20 percent prefer socialism and 27 percent are undecided.

The author of the article blames Rush Limbaugh, reasoning like this: Rush associates Barack Obama with socialism, and most people like Barack Obama; therefore, socialism must be a good thing!
