Majority of adults oppose proposed cuts to children's health programs

In a new poll (.pdf) commissioned by the advocacy group First Focus, U.S. adults show they're as opposed to cutting children's health programs as they are to cutting Medicare. As reported by Healthwatch:

Seventy percent of respondents somewhat or strongly opposed the GOP budget's cut to Medicaid, versus 27 percent in favor. The poll also indicated strong opposition to proposed cuts to the Children's Health Insurance Program (73 percent to 23 percent).

Also, 64 percent of respondents said they opposed giving state governors the flexibility to drop some children off of the rolls.
