The Democratic super PAC Priorities USA is shining a spotlight on the GOP health care bill's terrible polling. With a House vote imminent, it polled voters in 20 congressional districts (11 went for Hillary Clinton; 9 for Donald Trump) with a Republican member of Congress …

  • After being told that their member of Congress supports the GOP bill, net voter support dropped from +12 to -21.
  • The number that should terrify Republicans: voters generally said they'd reelect their member of Congress 44-38, but after being told about their member's support for the health care bill, that shifted to 45-38 in favor of a Democratic challenger.

The Trump administration is engaged in a full-court press to reopen schools this fall: The president threatened this morning to cut off federal funding if schools don't reopen, and claimed — without evidence — that Democrats want them closed through November for political reasons.

What they're saying: "Ultimately, it's not a matter of if schools should reopen — it is simply a matter of how," Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said, assailing "elite" D.C.-area schools for their "disaster" of an attempt at distance learning this spring. "They must fully open and they must be fully operational."
