Democrats appear to be embracing socialism more and more in the presidential election season.

A six to 10 majority of Democratic primary voters say socialism has a "positive impact on society," according to a poll conducted by the conservative advocacy group American Action Network, Politico reports.

The survey of 1,000 likely Democratic primary voters also agree by a 34-point margin that the Affordable Care Act does "not go far enough" and a single-payer health system should be enacted.

Politico says the findings will "fuel Republican claims that Democrats are increasingly out of the political mainstream — a point made frequently by the party's candidates."

The survey did not mention either Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton or second-place Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, by name.

In January, according to Politico, a Bloomberg/Des Moines Register Iowa Poll found 43 percent of likely Democratic caucus-goers used the word "socialist" to describe themselves.
