Americans Not Sold on Medicare For All

A proposal has been made to extend Medicare benefits to Americans of all ages. Voters are on the fence about the idea, but they do believe it would increase health care costs.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 42% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a plan to extend Medicare benefits to all Americans, not just those ages 65 and older. Forty-four percent (44%) oppose such a proposal, while 14% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on December 10-11, 2018 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
