Public Policy Polling, a Democratic polling firm, conducted polls in three states where a Republican Senator will have a key swing vote on the GOP health care plan: Nevada, West Virginia and Alaska.

The revelations: The Senate plan isn't out yet, but the repeal and replace plan that passed the House is deeply unpopular in all three states, and there are concerns about the secretive process through which the Senate plan is being crafted.

The findings:

  • In Nevada: 31% of all voters, 34% of independents and 61% of Trump voters approve of the AHCA.
  • In Alaska: 29% of all voters, 17% of independents and 59% of Trump voters approve.
  • In West Virginia: 35% of all voters, 27% of independents and 50% of Trump voters approve.
  • In all three states, majorities had either very serious or somewhat serious concerns about the lack of public hearings on the Senate plan, and lack of time for the public (and some members) to read and understand the bill.

Note: The polling was conducted on behalf of Save my Care, a group that wants to keep the Affordable Care Act in place.

Primary elections are being held on Tuesday in Minnesota, Georgia, Connecticut, Vermont and Wisconsin.

The big picture: Georgia and Wisconsin both struggled to hold primaries during the coronavirus pandemic, but are doing so again — testing their voting systems ahead of the general election. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is facing a strong challenger as she fights for her political career. In Georgia, a Republican primary runoff pits a QAnon supporter against a hardline conservative.

The U.S. government has agreed to buy 100 million doses of Moderna's experimental coronavirus vaccine for $1.5 billion, or $15 per dose.

Why it matters: The Trump administration, through Operation Warp Speed, has now bought initial batches of vaccines from Moderna, GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi, Pfizer, Novavax, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca before knowing whether they are safe and effective. The federal government also appears to own some of the patent rights associated with Moderna's vaccine.
