A new Pew poll documents the sharp partisan divide over socialism as Democratic presidential candidates move the party further to the left ahead of the 2020 election.

The survey, notes Andrew Malcolm at, found more than eight of 10 Republicans have a negative view of socialism, with nearly two-thirds having a very negative view.

The same poll, conducted April 29-May 13, shows why Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, a self-described democratic socialist, and other 2020 Democratic candidates maintain popularity while vowing to eliminate private health insurance.

Pew found 65 percent of Democrats have a positive view of socialism, although just 14 percent have a very positive view.

Some 78 percent of Republicans and Republican leaners, meanwhile, have a very or somewhat favorable view of capitalism.
