Democrats Clash Over How to Defeat Trump on Immigration in 2020More

Sanders, who has been running second in many opinion polls to Biden, responded in a statement that he had fought to pass and improve Obamacare and protect the Affordable Care Act from Republican efforts to repeal it. Levitt added, however, that Biden's plan would still leave "an inefficient and costly health care system in place", noting that 160 million Americans would still be stuck with high premiums and deductibles.

Overall, 24% say they back Biden, while 19% each support Sanders and Warren.

Sanders' supporters feel that Biden's approach is too incremental and antiquated.

Bernie Sanders will vigorously defend his signature "Medicare for All" proposal on Wednesday and hit back at his critics who say his push amounts to both bad politics and bad policy. And, in the end, should Biden or one of the other more moderate candidates in the field emerge from the scrum as the Democratic nominee, he'll effectively have inoculated himself against the argument that President Donald Trump would be able to make against Sanders, or others: He's for socialism, and socialism is bad.

He argued that some of his opponents, with the exception of Bernie Sanders, aren't fairly representing the consequences of their proposals.

Biden hopes his positioning as Obamacare's chief defender will remind voters of his work alongside former President Barack Obama, who remains popular among Democrats.

Biden's plan would allow people to buy into a government-run insurance program, allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices with manufacturers, eliminate the income cap on Obamacare subsidies, and expand Medicaid to roughly 5 million more people.

Fox News host Sean Hannity has accepted the push-up challenge that Joe Biden issued to President Donald Trump, offering to sub it for the president. (Obamacare's favorable numbers have outpaced its unfavorable ones since nearly the minute the former president left office.) Among Democrats, the law is even more popular; 79% view it favorably while just 12% regard it unfavorably.

Harris has seen her poll numbers soar since the debate, when she went on the attack against Biden, as she criticized recent comments by the former vice president spotlighting his ability to find common ground during the 1970s with segregationist senators with whom he disagreed, and over his opposition decades ago to federally mandated school busing. Which means that for all the feisty back-and-forth about health care policy, almost all of the Democrats running for president appear to agree on at least one thing: Obamacare isn't working. Elizabeth Warren, support Medicare for All.

"There's been a lot of misinformation out there about Medicare-for-all and what it means for the average person", said Jeff Weaver, a senior Sanders campaign adviser.

"I think it could be a political problem", said Democratic Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, who is seeking the party's nomination and favors a public option.

It is also a defense of Medicare as it exists today, one that mirrors the tack that President Trump and other Republicans have taken against Sanders' single-payer proposal: At an AARP event last night, Biden warned that with Medicare for All, "Medicare as you know it goes away".

"I'm not going to get down in the dirt with him", said the former Vice President. He said it's going to end all private insurance. Amy Klobuchar touts a public option as the next logical move even for single-payer advocates.

During a live-streamed discussion on Tuesday, Sanders dismissed Biden's criticisms of Medicare for All and said the nation should have "a health care debate on the facts and not on fear-mongering".
