Organization: Sooner Poll
Conducted: August 13-31, 2020
Exact wording: 'Medicare for All' is a single-payer health care system that would provide healthcare to everyone in the United States with no premium or deductibles. Proponents say it is a right and that enrolling everyone in one plan is the best way to ensure universal coverage, especially for the economic vulnerable, and would free Americans to change jobs without losing coverage. Critics say it does away with nearly all private insurance, will cost as much as $3.5 trillion dollars a year, create longer waits and less medical specialists, and all run by a federal government that has trouble running the post office. Knowing this, do you SUPPORT or OPPOSE Medicare for All?

Overall Findings: 31.7% support, 61.1% oppose, 7.2% neutral/ no opinion
Party Lines: 50.3% Democrats support, 17.5% Republicans support, 59.4% Independents support
