Eliza Relman, Business Insider:

A solid majority of Americans — 57% — who’ve already paid off their student-loan debt support Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s ambitious new plan to cancel tens of millions of Americans’ student debt, according to a new INSIDER poll.

The Massachusetts Democrat’s proposal would forgive $50,000 in student-loan debt for every American whose family makes up to $100,000, and households that make between $100,000 and $250,000 would get a sliding portion of their debt canceled. In addition, Warren’s plan would make all public higher education, including community colleges, tuition- and fee-free.

Warren’s plan is vast in scope: It would eliminate all student debt for 75% of Americans who have it, and get rid of at least some debt for 95% of the almost 45 million affected Americans, according to an analysis by four social policy professors released by Warren’s campaign.

The poll also found deep support among Democratic primary voters: 77% of Democrats who said they’d likely vote in the 2020 presidential primary were either somewhat or strongly supportive of the proposal’s debt cancellation.
