A pro-Bernie crowd cheered loudly after Mayor Stephen Wukela fervently asked if there are a “bunch of socialists here in Myrtle Beach?”
Alright Myrtle Beach! Alright. How does it feel to be a bunch of radicals, huh? A bunch of revolutionaries? A bunch of socialists here in Myrtle Beach?

According to a Rasmussen Study released in November of last year, Democrats are far less convinced than Republicans and unaffiliated voters that a free-market system is superior to a socialist one and are much more willing to vote for a socialist candidate.
Those under 40 are a lot more responsive to the siren call of socialism than older voters are.
A new Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 69% of all Likely U.S. Voters rate a free-market economic system as better than socialism.
Just 12% think socialism is a better economic system, but 18% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
A closer look, however, finds that while 87% of Republicans and 69% of voters not affiliated with either major party see a free-market system as better, just 53% of Democrats agree.
Twenty-one percent (21%) of Democrats like socialism better, with a sizable 25% not sure.
