  •  And interesting that SurveyUSA also polled (5+ / 0-)

    the NBC question and got the NBC result. So it's not a contradiction - they were using different questions and measuring different things.

Obama ought to come out unequivocally for a Medicare-for-all style public plan and get it passed. He'd then sail through to his second term in flying colors.
