This Time It Is Not The Economy Stupid: It Is Health Care

First of all, the fact that the health care bill is no longer the topic du jore does not mean it is no longer an issue. The real questions are whether the health care bill moved voters away from the Democrats, and whether those voters have since moved back now that the debate is over. The answers are yes - the debate moved voters away from the Democrats; and no - the voters have not come back.
This time it is not the economy stupid. The above chart and quotation from RealClearPolitics blog shows that the Democrats will lose control of the House of Representatives in the November 2010 election because of health care. Read the complete RealClearPolitics blog, "Health Care Reform Has Endangered the Democratic Majority" by Jay Cost.
