Last year, fewer than half of the districts had health care as a top search. Now, more than three-quarters have it as a top search.
This is surprising but not shocking. We reported last week that health care was the most popular subject for political ads in August, with more than half of the ads supporting Democrats who mentioned the issue. While a greater percentage of Democrat-held districts ranked health care above all other searches last year, now Republican-held districts are slightly more likely to search for the subject above all others.
