The vast majority of Americans support keeping ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion, according to a new poll released Friday.
The Kaiser Family Foundation tracking poll showed that 84 percent of those surveyed say it is either “very” or “somewhat” important for ObamaCare’s replacement to include funding for the Medicaid expansion.
That includes 95 percent of Democrats, 84 percent of independents and 69 percent of Republicans.
Meanwhile, of the 16 expansion states that have Republican governors, 87 percent of residents say it is important to keep the expansion. The numbers are similar for expansion states with Democratic or independent governors (85 percent.)
