It’s not the economy, stupid. It’s ObamaCare.

What could be generating such a historic enthusiasm gap between the parties while also causing so many independents to jump ship from the Democrats? Federal spending, federal debt, federal indifference to popular desires — all of which is captured in one word: ObamaCare…

None of this can be explained by the economy or by other controversial votes. Essentially, all of these Democrats (45 of 48) supported the economic “stimulus.” And the 30 who voted for cap and trade are winning in 40 percent of their races, while the 18 who voted against it are winning in 44 percent of their races — essentially no difference and a far cry from the split we see with ObamaCare…

Moreover, a Democratic poll offered respondents the unusual chance to provide open-ended responses indicating why they disapprove of Obama’s performance. Their freely chosen words were then tallied. “Economy” and “money” were among the key words frequently used, but the two most frequent — used more than twice as often as any others — were “health care.”
