Earlier today, Dr. Walter Trou referred to a survey of Massachusetts physicians where 34% supported moving to a single-payer system. Dr. Trou , a former Philadelphia Health Commissioner, also is a board member of Healthcare4AllPA and Physicians for a National Health Plan (PNHP).
I found the study that was conducted in 2010, as well as the 2011 study that is now out.
The survey is in a pdf format that does not permit copying (you can print it or down load it though). I’ve summarized the findings that are of value to single-payer advocates, and they are attached. The url for both the 2010 and 2011 studies are at the end.
