Poll of the Day: What Voters Want to Hear on Health Care

Yuval Rosenberg

Enough with the talk about Medicare for All, tell us how our health care costs are going to come down.

That’s the message from nearly half of voters in a new Morning Consult poll. The poll, conducted September 13-15 among 533 voters who watched the most recent Democratic presidential debate, found that 47% want to hear more about health care plans might change their deductibles and co-pays or their prescription drug costs. A similar share of potential Democratic primary voters wanted to hear more about their pocketbook issues rather than broad policy debates.

Only 14% of voters want to hear more about potential tax increases, and only 7% of them want more debate about national health expenditures broadly.
