A coalition of liberal groups is releasing new polling to show that health care could be a key issue in the midterms, and that a vote for the Republican health care plan last year could come back to hurt GOP incumbents.
The polls, commissioned by the Health Care Voter coalition, were conducted in seven House districts and statewide in Nevada and Tennessee. The results, shared first with Roll Call, come one year after House Republicans and President Donald Trump celebrated passing the GOP health care bill, which would have dismantled parts of the 2010 health care law. That effort stalled in the Senate and the bill did not become law.
