Republicans are running heatedly on health care – repealing “ObamaCare” – and it is a cornerstone of their strategy. Winning on health care is critical to their motivation and to what they believe is the edge they need to ultimately prevail over Obama and congressional Democrats in November.
This poll suggests that they are right that health care will be a significant factor in the vote, but very wrong on the consequences. If Democrats take up the debate with confidence – educate voters on the benefits and, above all, denounce the battle to repeal and refight health care – they will win the issue. [cont.]
