April 8, 2020: Twenty-two percent of registered voters believe our nation’s response to the pandemic would have been better if private insurance companies were banned and all health coverage was provided by the federal government. However, a Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 38% believe things would be worse.[1]

The survey of 1,200 registered voters found that 18% don’t believe things would be all that different while 21% are not sure.[1]

In just about every measured demographic group, a plurality believes things would be worse with such a national healthcare system in place. The only exceptions are among Democrats and political liberals. Democrats, by a 36% to 21% margin, believe a national healthcare system would have produced a better outcome. Liberals, by a 36% to 20% margin, share the same sentiment.[1]

Republicans strongly disagree. Sixty-one percent (61%) of GOP voters believe a national healthcare system would have made things worse. Only 11% say better. The numbers are similar among conservatives (64% to 10%).[1]

Nineteen percent (19%) of independent voters believe things would have been better while 35% say worse.[1]
