Joe Biden and Democratic candidates for Congress are campaigning heavily on healthcare, arguing that another term of a Trump presidency would mean a rollback of insurance protections that are extremely popular. Mr. Biden pressed the issue at Tuesday night’s presidential debate, saying “there’s 100 million people that have pre-existing conditions” who could see their access to insurance “taken away.”

That case seems to sway Democratic and independent voters, but not Republicans: Recent polls show the party’s voters believe the president will do the best job of protecting those with pre-existing conditions. They believe the repeated promises he makes, at campaign rallies, in Twitter messages and with executive orders — despite his support of lawsuits and legislation that would do the opposite.
