Not surprisingly, those who came of age in the Cold War era are less likely to consider voting for a socialist candidate. Gallup found that 34 percent of those 65 and older, 37 percent of 50-64 year olds, and 50 percent of 30-49 year olds would vote for a socialist. In contrast, 69 percent of 18-29 year olds indicated that they would vote for a socialist for the nation’s highest office-holder. Chalk that up to either youthful idealism or to a profound shift in the young generation’s political outlook that could have a lasting influence as they get older.
