The Real Cost of Medicaid — Feb. 2017 Poll

March 2, 2017


medicaid feb 2017

Our Feb. 2017 poll was able to look in depth at what people really think when asked about Medicaid.

The poll asked NC voters:

“The Medicaid expansion authorized by Obamacare would cover mostly healthy adults with no children and would soon cost North Carolina taxpayers at least $600 million a year to fund. In addition, past trends suggest that roughly 6 out of 10 new Medicaid enrollees would be people currently on private health insurance who would then switch to Medicaid. With that in mind, do you support or oppose North Carolina expanding Medicaid as authorized by Obamacare?”

The response:

41%     Total Support

47%     Total Oppose
