RE: 51% Of Self-Identified Republicans In Swing Districts Favor A Public Option
Would you favor or oppose the national government offering everyone the choice of a government administered health insurance plan â something like the Medicare coverage that people 65 and older get â that would compete with private health insurance plans?
Every poll that ends up with a result of large support for a public option has included the comparison to Medicare in the question. Since Medicare is single-payer, which the public option in any form would not be, that is a flawed comparison. I feel that it is just a way to sell the question, in other words, to push the poll.
