Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders claimed another victory in the Nevada caucus on Saturday night. And two separate exit polls show his signature Medicare for All plan has proved popular with Democratic primary voters in the first three nominating states.
The Vermont senator has campaigned on creating a Medicare for All healthcare system that’s managed by the government and insures every American whether they want it or not. The plan would abolish private insurance in the process, and do away with deductibles, premiums, and out-of-pocket spending.
An NBC News entrance poll showed that Sanders’ proposal to enact a government-run healthcare system that abolishes private insurance gained strong majority support in Nevada among Democrats. Around 62% supported it while 35% were opposed.
