Yes, a lot of people support this idea in the abstract. However, would they continue to do so if the cost of funding Medicare for All was stated up front? When the massive tax increase required is presented, will support for it still be so high?

Your article didn’t say at all how it would be paid for, neither did Bernie Sanders. Given the enormity of the cost you are really only addressing half of the discussion that needs to be had.
