In a new poll conducted by Hill.TV and the HarrisX polling company, 52 percent of Republicans said they supported universal healthcare in the United States. Twenty-fiver percent of the GOP voters said they “strongly” backed Medicare For All, which would offer healthcare to ever American at a lower cost.

While Donald Trump and Republican leaders try to push fact-free claims about Medicare For All, their base is in support of “a system that would cover everybody with high-quality health coverage while reducing overall costs,” Common Dreams reported.

“In poll after poll, the American people are voicing their overwhelming support for the United States joining every other major country in guaranteeing healthcare as a right to every woman, man, and child with Medicare For All,” Our Revolution said in a statement.

The poll also concluded that 92 percent of Democrats and 68 percent of independents support Medicare for All.

“As Donald Trump and Republicans have stepped up attacks on Medicare for All, their own party has embraced the policy,” Josh Miller-Lewis, communications director for Sen. Bernie Sanders, said.
