A poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and MTV finds that large majorities of young Americans want to see an expansion of government services, including a single-payer health care program.
According to the poll, 69 percent of young Americans between the ages of 15 and 34 favor a single-payer program, while 88 percent of young Democrats and 40 percent of young Republicans favor a government-run health insurance program. Roughly two-thirds of young independents are in favor.
Young Americans call health care a very important issue in deciding how to vote. Sixty-two percent of those who will be old enough to vote in the midterms rate it as such. That's more than say the same of other issues, including immigration and the economy.
