MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - A poll shows that two-thirds of Tennesseans haven’t heard much about Gov. Bill Haslam’s plan to extend health coverage to more than 280,000 low-income residents. But the MTSU Poll indicates support significantly outweighs opposition among people familiar with the plan.

The poll released Saturday surveyed 600 adult residents statewide a week before a special legislative session convenes Monday to consider the governor’s Insure Tennessee proposal.

The poll found 33 percent of Tennesseans have read or heard a lot or some about the proposal. Sixty-six percent have heard little or nothing about the proposal.

Among the 33 percent who have at least some information, 49 percent favor the proposal, 11 percent oppose it and 40 percent are unsure or haven’t made up their minds.

The survey’s margin of error is 4 percentage points.
