Poll shows majority support state-run health care in Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A new poll shows that a majority of Wisconsin residents support a state-run health insurance system.

The University of Wisconsin Survey Center's Badger Poll says 51% of respondents support such a change. The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 4 percentage points.

A larger majority of 61% support encouraging people to put money into a tax-free health savings account that would help pay for health care costs.

72% favor requiring all people to have insurance. And 82% support expanding existing state government health insurance programs for low-income people.

The poll of 507 people was conducted between Nov. 27 and Dec. 5.
