Overall Findings: 44% support, 53% oppose, 3% unsure/don’t know

Summary: A 2019 NBC/WSJ poll found that 44% of Americans support Medicare for All. Support among Democrats is much higher than overall support for this policy. However, the wording of this poll seems biased against Medicare for All as it uses a vague description of the policy that fails to include its benefits.
