1 number that shows us people really, really like their health care
That’s the percentage of Democrats in that say their health care is either “excellent” or “good.” It’s a very interesting finding given that the biggest divide within the 2020 Democratic field is over health care.
On one side is former Vice President Joe Biden and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Both Biden and Buttigieg support keeping the Affordable Care Act, passed into law by President Barack Obama, while seeking to fix the parts of the law that have come under criticism.
On the other side are Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Their argument is that the current system – put in place by Obama – is an improvement on what it replaced but is simply not enough, and needs to go in order to be replaced by a public health insurance system.
If you are Sanders or Warren, the Gallup numbers have to give you some pause. If 7 out of 10 of your voters say they are happy with something, it is usually inadvisable to stake your campaign on the idea that the thing they like needs to be fundamentally altered.
You can argue that people may like their coverage but that these Democrats believe deep down that the best way to cover everyone at an affordable cost is Medicare for All, and that their principles will trump their personal satisfaction with their health care.
