Expanding Medicaid has long been a controversial subject in Utah. But a new poll shows a majority of Utahns support greater access to low-income health insurance under an upcoming citizen ballot initiative.
According to the new poll, 59 percent of Utahns support full Medicaid expansion. It was conducted by Dan Jones and Associates for the website UtahPolicy.com. The poll was based on the Utah Decides Healthcare ballot initiative. Rylee Curtis is their campaign manager.
"I’m not surprised but I’m very excited about the poll numbers that came out today," Curtis says.
