    It's hard to tell whether a politician is being honest about personal beliefs (as opposed to public positions), but party pressure such as threats to withdraw support might be affecting some of the Republicans.  Several of the Republican legislators our people met with yesterday said they personally favored single payer but their party would never let them vote for it.  They could have been trying to get us off their backs, but I suspect that at least one or two were being honest about why they couldn't vote yes.
