Researchers said the results show that a ‘strong majority of likely voters believe the United States should reject socialism and instead adopt free-market economic principles’.  

Chris Talgo, an editor and research fellow at the Heartland Institute, said: ‘Despite the increased calls for socialism by many on the far left, the vast majority of likely voters believe that the United States should embrace a free-market economy.

‘Only a sliver of likely voters think that the United States should abandon the free-market capitalistic policies that are responsible for making the United States the wealthiest nation in world history.’

Talgo continued: ‘Despite the countless calls for more socialism among elites in media and Hollywood, Americans aren’t interested in adopting the same socialist policies that have led to mass poverty wherever they have been tried.’

While a superstar on the left, Ocasio-Cortez has long ruffled the feathers of moderate Democrats. 

Just last week Ocasio-Cortez lost a race for a seat on the prestigious House Energy and Commerce Committee when colleagues voted overwhelmingly for fellow New York Democratic Rep Kathleen Rice.
