New Poll: Wyoming Opposes Obamacare's Medicaid Expansion
CHEYENNE, WY- OnMessage, Inc. recently conducted a statewide survey on behalf of the Wyoming Liberty Group. The survey consisted of 600 likely voters and was stratified to reflect historic voter trends. The poll focused on the ongoing fiscal challenges facing Wyoming and asked voters to consider a variety of questions centered around possible tax increases, government transparency and waste, health care and education issues.
One of the survey questions asked Wyoming voters whether they support or oppose expanding Medicaid under Obamacare. A majority of Wyoming voters oppose Medicaid expansion. In a follow up question, voters who supported Medicaid expansion were asked if they would continue to support expansion if it increasedtheir taxes. Combining these two responses, a total of 58% of Wyoming voters oppose Medicaid expansion, while only 33% of voters support Medicaid expansion if they know it raises their taxes.
“This poll shows very clearly that Wyoming citizens oppose expanding a wasteful and overburdened program. Medicaid expansion would create a brand new entitlement for childless and able-bodied adults, most of whom already have private insurance. Worst of all, it would prioritize their healthcare over truly needy patients already on Medicaid,” said Susan Gore, Wyoming Liberty Group.
The margin of error for this survey was +/- 4.00%.
