Poll shows Granite Staters favor Medicaid expansion plan
A sampling of 774 Granite Staters were asked if they would support a plan "to extend private insurance to low-income residents, without passing the cost of coverage on to businesses." The question says the plan is supported by "the governor and a bipartisan group of state senators."
Also, 64 percent they support increasing eligibility of Medicaid to families with incomes up to $32,000 a year, while 26 percent were opposed.
The poll also showed 76 percent support universal background checks for any guns purchased through dealers, gun shows or individual sales, while 22 percent were opposed.
According to the poll, 25 percent of voters said they would prefer a "third option," and 27 percent said they did not yet know who they will vote for in November.
