Behind the Poll:
According to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, most Americans favor free-market capitalism to big government socialism.
“We discovered, partly with Larry Kudlow’s help, he came up with the term free-market capitalism. And we then developed as a counterpoint, big government socialism. And it turned out…you need all six words, capitalism versus socialism. Capitalism wins, but not by a decisive margin. But if it’s free-market capitalism versus big government socialism, it’s a 59 to 16 issue,” said the former House Speaker.
Given this research, Gingrich says it’s important prior to the 2022 mid-terms to brand Democrats as being in favor of big government socialism.
