Voters not as supportive of Medicare for All as Democrat candidates
Washington Free Beacon:
As Democratic presidential candidates prepare for the second round of debates in Detroit next week, the party is hoping the candidate who ends up winning the nomination in 2020 will fare better in Michigan than Hillary Clinton, who managed to lose to reliably blue state to Donald Trump by 10,704 votes, thanks in no small part to bumbling incompetence.I don't understand how anyone would swap their current plan for Medicare and the higher taxes that come along with it.
A recent poll, however, suggests that Michigan voters are not on board with the healthcare proposals championed by many of the leading candidates in the field. A survey of likely Michigan voters published this week found that a majority opposes a "Medicare for All" policy that would eliminate private health insurance and replace it with a government-run, single-payer system.
According to the poll, 52 percent of likely voters in Michigan oppose Medicare for All, with nearly 40 percent saying they "strongly oppose" the idea. Just 37 percent of likely voters said they support it.
