Health Care: Democrats Owning The Issue

The post-Bush shift in the national consensus continues.

As the field of announced presidential candidates is established, the Democrats are gaining ground with the U.S. public as the party they trust to improve and reform the U.S. healthcare system. Senator Hillary Clinton is most trusted on this issue overall, largely because of high levels of confidence among Democrats. She and the Democrats are more trusted now than they were in March 2006, while trust in President Bush declines.

People are learning: you can't trust people who hate the government to run your government.
