This is Freaking Crazy

From Gallup:

Socialism Viewed Positively by 36% of Americans
Majority of Americans positive on capitalism, entrepreneurs, free enterprise, and small business
by Frank Newport

More than one-third of Americans (36%) have a positive image of "socialism," while 58% have a negative image. Views differ by party and ideology, with a majority of Democrats and liberals saying they have a positive view of socialism, compared to a minority of Republicans and conservatives.
Comrade Khruschev must be laughing his ass off in hell.

It would be interesting to see similar polls taken several decades ago. Was socialism more popular/less popular/as popular?

A decade ago would probably be similar. Two decades ago, I would imagine the number of Americans with a favorable view of socialism in the survey would be significantly fewer, perhaps half as many.
