      If there not enough votes for a whittled down public option that did not allow open enrollment; that only 6 million would be eligible for; and therefore would not have been significant competition to private insurers, there certainly were not enough votes for single payer.

      Just as it matters less how well a politician polls prior to an election and mattes more how many votes he gets during an election, it matters less how well a policy polls and matters more how many votes the policy can win in Congress.
