Support among many of the 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls of government health care for undocumented immigrants may prove damaging in the eventual race against President Donald Trump, former Sen. Evan Bayh told CNBC on Monday.
"That particular position may come back to haunt them in the general election," said the Indiana Democrat who also served as governor of his state. "It's nice to be able to promise some of these things, but they have got to be realistic."
In the first Democrat debate last week, the 10 candidates on stage the second night on Thursday — including former Vice President Joe Biden as well as Sens. Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand — all raised their hands when asked who would offer health insurance to immigrants who entered the U.S. illegally.
Trump quickly responded on Twitter.
Bayh, who took initial steps to run for president in 2008 but then decided against it, said the kinds of issues that play in a primary race might be detrimental in a general election. "The base of the party, which tends to dominate the nominating process, may not be part of the electorate that decides the general election outcome."
"I'm afraid President Trump and the people who support him ... filed that footage away," Bayh added.
Nearly every candidate seeking the Democratic nomination supports some kind of government health-care solution, including Medicare-for-all and universal coverage plans.
