Among Americans under 30, 52% say that ‘most’ rich people in the United States got rich ‘by taking advantage of other people.’

In contrast, a strong 72% majority of seniors over 65 say that most wealthy people in America ‘earned their wealth’ without exploiting people.

Americans under 30 were also much more ambivalent toward capitalism and supportive of socialism.

The survey found support for capitalism and socialism nearly evenly split among young Americans, with 49% saying they are favorable toward capitalism, and 50% saying they are favorable toward socialism.
