A new survey conducted by a Virginia school shows a majority of the Commonwealth’s voters support expanding the Medicaid rolls if the federal government picks up most of the tab. A poll from Christopher Newport University shows 56 % want  to expand Medicaid and 38% oppose it if the feds honor their commitments. If the feds don’t provide the money for the program, 54% of Virginians would oppose plans for Medicaid and 41% would support it. The CNU poll also shows most Virginia voters favor a $250 cap on gifts to lawmakers and want to let a governor seek a second term. Virginia is the only state where a governor is limited to a single term.
