This finding squares with numerous national surveys that show people recognize a public option will give us more choice... which is supposedly what the Republicans want us to have.
A sampling of other survey measures of support for the public option:
- NBC/WSJ: 76%
- CBS/NYT: 72%
- Conservative Employee Benefit Research Institute: 83%
- Quinnipiac: 69%
- Abt SRBI: 56% (note: this survey, conducted last week in the heat of Congressional committee debate, found 49% in favor of a single-payer plan and 46% opposed. We've elected Presidents on narrower margins than that.)
- Lake County Dems: 88%
