Terrie Dietrich, left, and her daughter Erin Cross, talk in Dietrich’s home in Henderson, Nev., Thursday, Aug. 22, 2019. “Medicare for All” remains hugely popular, but majorities say they’d prefer building on “Obamacare” to expand coverage instead of a new government program that replaces America’s mix of private and public insurance.

Cross, 54, also a Democrat, said she’s not comfortable with switching to a system where a government plan is the only choice. (AP Photo/Michelle L. Price)
