Medicare For All Support Drops by Only Ten Points When Making Private Insurance Illegal is Called Out in Poll Question

Here are the results of the same poll question, but this time, without the eliminate private insurance phrase:

Ten points, that’s all the delta in not making private insurers illegal, ten measly points.

Here is how the pollsters described the results:

“The first question was this one: ‘Do you support or oppose Medicare for All, which is a system where all Americans, not just older ones, get health insurance through the government’s Medicare system?’ Nearly two-thirds of respondents answered yes, with only 27% opposed (and the rest undecided). When the description of the proposal was phrased in a different way — that Medicare for All entails the end of their existing health insurance, which is what several prominent proponents have conceded — support for it ebbed, but not by as much as Republicans might think.”

“‘Do you support or oppose Medicare for All, which is a system that will eliminate all private health insurance companies, and where all Americans, not just older ones, get health insurance through the government’s Medicare system?’ Even with that caveat, 55% were in support, with 34% opposed.”
