ACA Gallup Poll
A new Gallup poll shows that the single-payer option attracts both Democrats who see the Affordable Care Act (ACA) gaps and failures and Republicans who simply want any alternative. In the May 8-10, 2016 Gallup test, Americans were offered three options, which are also associated with the three current leading candidates for their respective party nominations, Bernie Sanders’s single-payer (Medicare for All) approach beat Hillary Clinton’s “Keep the ACA” and Donald Trump’s “repeal the ACA” (and replace it with an unknown option).
