60-40 NATION:

Poll: 'Medicare for All' Support Is High ... But Complicated (Carl M. Cannon, 5/15/19, RCP)

The first question was this one: "Do you support or oppose Medicare for All, which is a system where all Americans, not just older ones, get health insurance through the government's Medicare system? Nearly two-thirds of respondents answered yes, with only 27% opposed (and the rest undecided). When the description of the proposal was phrased in a different way -- that Medicare for All entails the end of their existing health insurance, which is what several prominent proponents have conceded -- support for it ebbed, but not by as much as Republicans might think.

"Do you support or oppose Medicare for All, which is a system that will eliminate all private health insurance companies, and where all Americans, not just older ones, get health insurance through the government's Medicare system?" Even with that caveat, 55% were in support, with 34% opposed.
