Poll: 2 out of 3 Granite Staters back Medicaid compromise in N.H.
Two out of three New Hampshire voters favor a compromise Medicaid plan to extend private insurance to about 50,000 state residents, according to a New England College poll.
Of the 774 residents polled by the Henniker college, 66 percent said they support a plan backed by Gov. Maggie Hassan and a bipartisan group of senators. A quarter of those polled said they don’t support the idea, while 10 percent said they are unsure.
The Medicaid bill is expected to pass the Senate on Thursday, setting up possible approval by the Democrat-led House by early April.
The margin of error for the poll is 3.57 percent.
