Trumpcare isn't helping the GOP
This is from the Pew Research Center poll that came out yesterday: Democrats now have a 19-point advantage over Republicans on who does the best job on health care. They've always had a bit of an advantage, except for the rockiest period right before the full implementation of Obamacare. But this is easily the biggest gap since Obamacare was passed.
Why it matters: Republicans are feeling a lot of pressure to reach an agreement so they can repeal Obamacare — mostly to fulfill their campaign promises — but it's not going to get any easier for them if the polling doesn't get better.
