Sanders town hall audience cheers after Fox News host asks if they'd support 'Medicare for all'



The audience at a Fox News town hall erupted in cheers and applause when asked by moderator Bret Baier if they would support Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I-Vt.) "Medicare For all" proposal.

"I want to ask the audience a question here, a show of hands... how many are willing to transition to what the senator says: a government-run system?" Baier asked before the crowd burst into cheers.

Despite criticism, a number of polls have shown both Democratic and Republican voters actually support "Medicare for all" proposals. One such poll conducted by The Hill last October showed a majority of Republicans supported single-payer. Another poll conducted in January of 2019 showed that 56 percent of American voters support such an insurance system.

The video of Sanders on Fox quickly gained attention online Monday, with many pointing to the applause and past polling as examples of support among even conservatives for Medicare for All.

There is a nice video on the link, it matches up well with my OP.




Why would anyone want to be tied to their employer in order to get health care?
