Democrats want 2020 presidential candidates to start talking about subjects much closer to their pocketbooks, Morning Consult reports.
Why it matters: Voters are tired of watching 2020 candidates debate on stage whether "Medicare for All" should get rid of private insurance or how much it would cost taxpayers.
By the numbers: Instead, 1 out of 4 polled want them to talk about subjects like copays and deductibles.
- Even more potential Democratic primary voters said they were most interested in the topic of individual health costs.
Flashback: ABC's George Stephanopoulos kicked off last week's debate by asking again whether Americans should anticipate tax increases from the candidates' health care plans.
- Voters are ready for fresh material. For example, another 22% out of 533 voters polled said they want the next debate to address prescription drug costs — a subject that hasn't come up at all onstage.
