Poll: 47% Of Young Democrats Prefer Other Countries Over America

(Breitbart) – A shocking new poll has discovered that 47 percent of young Democrats believe that other countries are better than the United States. Moreover, many young Americans admit that they wouldn’t mind other countries becoming as militarily powerful as the United States.

Slightly more than one third — 36 percent — of Americans 18 to 29 say that other countries are better than the United States, according to a recent poll released by Pew Research.

Among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents under the age of 30, nearly half, 47 percent, say that there are other countries that are better than the U.S. Meanwhile, just 20 percent of Democrats age 50 and over agree with this sentiment.

“Democrats have become more likely to say there are other countries that are better than the U.S.,” says Pew Research. “In telephone surveys, the share of Democrats saying this is higher than at any point since the question was first asked by Pew Research Center in 2011, and there has been a corresponding decline in the share saying the U.S. stands above other nations.” This poll demonstrates the dramatic shift in the Democrat party’s base, and the potential schism between traditional Democrat voters and young and woke progressives.

The study also noted that young Americans are “more likely to say it would be acceptable if another country became as militarily powerful as the U.S.”

According to Pew Research, a majority of adults — 61 percent — say that the United States should maintain its status as a military superpower, but that more than half — 55 percent — of Democrats under the age of 30 admit that they would find it acceptable if other nations became as militarily powerful as the United States.

Among young Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, these numbers are significantly lower, as just 19 percent of adults under the age of 30 agree with their young Democrat counterparts with regards to the idea that other countries are superior to the United States.

Among Republicans ages 50 and older, only 4 percent share agree with this sentiment.

The report added that while a majority of Republicans say that the Untied States should try to maintain its status as a military superpower, 38 percent of Republicans under the age of 30 say that it would be acceptable if another country became as militarily powerful as the U.S.

  1. FINE if you think other countries are so great. Why are.people flooding in here from those same countries? For this “Utopia” how much of their income is taken to support these great societies?

  2. The problem is only going to get worse as long as parents stand idly by and allow the kids to be indoctrinated by liberal teachers and college professors, The sad reality is that most of those young kids that dont believe in America simply dont having any understanding of History and the price that has been paid by so many in the past. They are being indoctrinated by those that have never given anything back to this country they have been takers all their lives and they will continue to be takers because others have paid the price for them. They are doing their best to lead our country down the path of SOCIALISM which is not FREEDOM it is in fact a lack of freedom. The question i have for them is if SOCIALISM is so great WHY ARE SO MANY FROM SOCIALIST COUNTRIES TRYING TO COME TO AMERICA? AS OF YET THEY HAVE NO ANSWER.
    America is not a perfect country, But it is far better than any other country around the world.We have freedom and opportunity here that others around the world dont have. Maybe some of these liberal and socialist should take a trip to NORMANDY and walk among the grave sites of those that paid the ultimate price for the freedom we have as a nation. Im ex military so those grave markers have a special meaning to me, I find it disgusting when i see those that have never contributed anthing,to our country continue to trash it try living in the Middle East, North Korea, CHINA, or Central or South America I think you would soon discover that America is much better than you thought.

  3. We have to take back our schools and stop the indoctrination. Schools should be for learning unlike the left who uses them to brainwash our children.

  4. America is the only country in the western world that executes people with a death sentence , that barbarity finished in Europe over half a century ago , the only country that doesn’t include universal healthcare, most other countries in the western world take affordable health care for granted, The UK for example celebrated and is immensely proud of The NHS ( it even included a 20 mins glorifying the NHS is the London Olympic opening ceremony ) that’s just 2 examples of why the young democrats wanting and are increasing more aware of America’s very egregious shortcomings , and society’s increasing poisoned political discourse, the author of this article should take a good look at America and it’s history

    • Andy boy … America does have some states authorizing the death penalty for egregious, savage and barbaric crimes. That death penalty comes with an extended number of years on death row for review … to perhaps the criminal’s entire life. You have your head in the sand, to be polite. Now tell me about the criminal penalties of Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, China, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, … for a small example.

      You are the typical lefty loon who is filled with utopian fantasies only realized inside your thick skull, far from reality and rational thought. I can feel the HATE you spread with your irrational BS. Go soak your head … you are a foolish stooge.

  5. Good! Keep that train of thought; then act on it. Depending on where you go, you probably won’t last a week. But when you realize what an amazing country America is, don’t believe it; stay away, far, far away. You will not be missed!
