Poll: Biden's plan draws broader support than 'Medicare for All'

A poll conducted by USC Dornsife and the Los Angeles Times found former Vice President Joe Biden's public option healthcare plan has significantly more support among potential general election voters than "Medicare for All," the single-payer plan proposed by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

The Biden Plan had support from 48 percent of potential general election voters and opposition from 14 percent. Medicare for All had less support and more opposition. Thirty-nine percent said they were in favor of the single-payer plan, and 34 percent opposed it, according to the LA Times. The remaining voters were uncertain. 

Medicare for All support comes primarily from Democrats, while the public option draws support from a broader base of voters, according to the report. Within the Democratic party, voters appear to be neutral on the plans. The LA Times reports that the largest group of Democratic respondents said they support both plans.
