  • Battered by Trump, Obamacare Triumphs at the Polls  Politico by Rachana Pradhan — The 2010 health law survived a GOP repeal onslaught and buoyed Democrats on Tuesday — Obamacare made a comeback in Tuesday's elections, its strongest show of support since President Donald Trump was elected and the GOP spent months on a futile effort to repeal it. In the governor's race in Virginia and a ballot initiative in Maine, the Affordable Care Act buoyed Democrats, a remarkable reversal from how Trump and congressional Republicans won elections excoriating the "failed" and "doomed" law.  A remarkable 4 out of 10 Virginians in early exit polls said health care was their top issue in a race that saw Democrat Ralph Northam, the current lieutenant governor, handily defeat Republican Ed Gillespie to become Virginia's next governor. And in Maine, voters in a landslide backed Obamacare Medicaid expansion, which their governor had vetoed on five separate occasions.
