Survey: Most doctors now support a single-payer system

A new survey from Merritt Hawkins has found a majority of physicians support a single-payer healthcare system.

Forty-two percent of physicians surveyed strongly support a single-payer system and 14 percent somewhat support a single-payer system, while 35 percent strongly oppose such a system. When Merritt Hawkins conducted a similar survey in 2008, 58 percent of those surveyed opposed a single-payer system.

The survey was emailed to 70,000 physicians, of which 1,033 responded.
