40% of millennial men identify as socialist

A new poll examining the political leanings of the next generation of leaders found 31 percent of millennials identify as “democratic socialist” or “socialist” while 40 percent of men in that age group say the same.

The study by Maru/Blue and BuzzFeed News released Thursday, reported by the Daily Caller, asked 1,006 randomly selected 22- to 27-year-olds to characterize their political leanings.

Asked what “best reflects your current political leanings,” given options ranging from “Strong Democrat,” to “Strong Republican” or “Independent,” a total of 22 percent identified as “Strong Democrat.”

Only 10 percent would identify as “Strong Republican.”
