Giving Compass’ Take:
• The Hill discusses a poll done by the Kaiser Family Foundation in which the public was asked if they are either for or against the health system Medicare for All.
• How does public support for Medicare change depending on how the idea is framed by both conservatives and liberals?
A majority of the public supports a single-payer health insurance system, often called Medicare for All, as the idea gains steam among Democrats, according to a new poll.
The poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation finds that 56 percent of the public supports a single-payer, Medicare for All plan, compared to 42 percent who oppose the idea.
Progressives are pushing the new Democratic House majority to move forward on the idea, and many Democratic presidential hopefuls have signed on to the idea as well. More centrist Democratic lawmakers remain opposed to the proposal, however.
The poll finds that there are wide swings in support and opposition to the idea depending on how the question is asked.
