'Socialism,' 'Progressive' Not So Negative; 'Capitalism' Not So Positive

This is pretty depressing.  According to Pew Research's latest political rhetoric test, more Americans reported positive feelings for "progressive" than "capitalism." 

Meanwhile, feelings toward "socialism" are mostly negative, but nearly one-in-three Americans (who has apparently never taken a history class in their life) maintains a positive opinion of it.  Yay, Stalin!

Silver lining: conservatives' beloved "states" rights" and "family values" are still popular.
