In Iowa over the past week, "abortion" and "health care" were the top searched issues in relation to all 2020 candidates that have qualified for the next Democratic debate, according to the latest Google Trends data.

Why it matters: Iowa's caucus-goers will set the first real test of candidates' appeal to voters in just five days. Winning a single pledged delegate from the caucuses will also allow any candidate to join the next debate.

Candidate's top-searched issue: "Abortion"

  • Former Vice Presidet Joe Biden
  • Former mayor Pete Buttigieg
  • Former tech executive Andrew Yang
  • Billionaire Tom Steyer

Candidate's top-searched issue: "Health care"

  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar
  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders

Of note: Of these seven candidates, the only ones that Iowans searched for alongside "social security" were front-runners Biden, Sanders and Warren.

  • Yang, Buttigieg, Klobuchar, and Steyer were the only ones among the seven debate qualifiers to be searched alongside "climate change."

Background: Most candidates have suggested alternatives to Sanders' Medicare for All plan — which has no set price tag, but could cost trillions of dollars — to cast themselves as moderate alternatives on health care.

NYT: Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes in 2016 and 2017

The New York Times has obtained more than two decades' worth of tax-return data from Trump and the companies that make up his business, writing in an explosive report that the documents "tell a story fundamentally different from the one [the president] has sold to the American public."

Why it matters: The Times' bombshell report, published less than seven weeks before the presidential election, lays bare much of the financial information Trump has long sought to keep secret — including allegations that he paid $750 in federal income taxes in 2016 and 2017, and has over $300 million in personal debt obligations coming due in the next four years.
