83% of Virginians support Medicaid expansion, poll finds

A new poll commissioned by the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association found 83 percent of Virginia residents support Medicaid expansion in the state, according to The Hill.

The poll surveyed 600 potential voters between Dec. 17 and Dec. 20, and the margin of error is 4 percentage points.

The poll found 60 percent of respondents strongly favored expansion while 23 percent somewhat supported it. State Democrats have long supported Medicaid expansion. On Tuesday, Democrats in the state senate dropped a bill that sought to reopen a hospital, asking its Republican author to include Medicaid expansion in a revised proposal.
