Poll finds 'Medicare for All' gaining favor among Democrats 

Most Democratic primary voters (65 percent) say they are more likely to vote for a candidate who supports "Medicare for All" than who supports preserving and improving the ACA, up from 57 percent in January, according to an August poll conducted by Politico and Morning Consult.

The poll was conducted among nearly 2,000 registered voters, 39 percent Democrats, 30 percent independent and 31 percent Republicans.

Medicare for All also has a slight majority among all voters — 53 percent said they supported it, according to Politico. Broken down by party, most of that support comes from Democrats — 76 percent of Democrats said they supported Medicare for All, while 50 percent of independent voters support it and 29 percent of Republicans support it.  

The results indicate campaigning on Medicare for All may be a wise move for Democrats, according to Politico
