Hi. Which phrase is grammatically correct: "views on" or "views about"?

Would you say:

"What are your views on socialism?"

or

"What are your views about socialism?"

Please help. Thank you.

@JGoldman10,
The two are pretty much equivalent. I would be more likely to say the first, but either would sound perfectly normal in American English.

@maxdancona,
I think "views on" sounds better.

@JGoldman10,
Then why did you ask the question?

It's typical of Mr.Goldman to do this. It might be his way of gaining the confidence in whatever direction he wants to go.




....For twisted fun and entertainment, perhaps we should always provide an answer in the affirmative for any and all of his choices.

@JGoldman10,
Either is fine, but "views on" is more concise—and people are so overwhelmed by content these days, usually "less is more".
