A majority of Fox News' town hall audience supports Bernie Sanders' "Medicare for All" proposal"

How many are willing to transition to what the senator says, a government-run system?" Bret Baier asked the crowd.

"SNIP.....

As Baier polled the studio audience about Sanders' support of "Medicare for All," its vocal enthusiasm for the plan seemed to overshadow the Fox News host's follow-up question.

"I want to ask the audience a question. If you could raise your hand here, a show of hands of how many people get their insurance from work, private insurance right now?" Baier asked. "Now of those, how many are willing to transition to what the senator says, a government-run system?"

After a majority of audience members appeared to raise their hands, Baier attempted to reframe the question by asking Sanders, "There’s 180 million people on private insurance, and they would be lost, right?"

"Fair question. I know it’s what the right wing throws out, so let me answer it, all right? Millions of people every single year lose their health insurance, you know why? They get fired, or they quit and they go to another employer. I was a mayor for eight years, and you know what I did? What probably every mayor in America does is you look around for the best insurance program, the most cost-effective insurance. You change insurance. Every year, millions of workers wake up in the morning, and their employer has changed the insurance that they have. Maybe they liked the doctors. Some people are nodding their heads. OK. So this is not new – every year. Now what we’re talking about actually is stability – that when you have a ‘Medicare for All,’ it is there now and will be there in the future."
