New Washington Post-Kaiser Family Foundation poll finds a slight majority of Americans support singlepayer health care approach, with numbers showing glaring partisan divide 

About Half Of Americans Support Singlepayer Health Care
The Washington Post
“As President Trump’s administration tries to chip away at the Affordable Care Act by giving more authority to states to regulate private insurance, a new poll finds a slight majority of Americans support a move in the opposite direction, with everyone getting health insurance from a national government-run program. A Washington Post-Kaiser Family Foundation poll finds a 51 percent majority of Americans support a national health plan, also known as a singlepayer plan, while 43 percent oppose it. Nearly three-quarters of Democrats support a singlepayer health plan (74 percent), while a slightly larger share of Republicans oppose it (80 percent). Independents break the tie, supporting a government-run health-care plan by 54 percent to 40 percent. Support is relatively high among rallygoers, defined as those who have attended a rally or a protest within the past two years. A 61 percent majority of this Democratic-leaning group supports a singlenational health plan. Just under half of non-rallygoers, 49 percent, feel the same way. Those who attended a protest or rally to express their views on the Affordable Care Act in the past two years favor a national health plan by a more than 4-to-1 margin, 79 percent to 18 percent. This group is also overwhelmingly defensive of the ACA, with 85 percent saying they came out to express support for the law.”
