How Democrats Can Use Healthcare to Win Big in 2018 Midterms

- The Gallup poll for the last year has been showing that Obamacare (ACA) is approved of by over half of American voters.
- A new HuffPost/YouGov poll shows that American voters are more focused on health care than any other issue. Over 30 percent of voters polled said that health care was their top issue, which was more than twice as many as any other issue.
- In a December Gallup poll nearly half of Americans support a government-run healthcare system, the highest number ever. In fact, through Medicare, Medicaid, the Veterans’ Administration, the federal government and the prison system, about 40% of Americans already receive their healthcare from government-run programs.

Add all this together and you can’t help but reach an inescapable conclusion: If health care plays a prominent role in this year’s election, it could provide a huge advantage for Democrats.
