No matter what Democrats say, Obamacare has taken centerstage during Campaign 2014

I’m sure you’ve heard liberals scream that Republicans are not running against Obamacare as projected, however a breakdown of advertising content exposes that myth:

The top-5 issues for the GOP in Senate races for the week of October 13-19 were as follows:

  1. Obamacare (nearly 12,000 ads)
  2.  Budget/Government Spending (nearly 9,000 ads)
  3.  Energy/Environment (nearly 7,000 ads)
  4.  Jobs/Unemployment (more than 6,000 ads)
  5.   Immigration (nearly 5,000 ads)

A week earlier, the pattern was basically the same—as Republicans ran over 11,000 anti-Obamacare ads.  These were the GOP’s top-5 issues in Senate races for the week of October 6-12:

  1. Obamacare (more than 11,000 ads)
  2.  Jobs/Unemployment (more than 9,000 ads)
  3.  Budget/Government Spending (more than 8,000 ads)
  4.  Energy/Environment (more than 6,000 ads) 5. Medicare (nearly 6,000 ads)

This breakdown shows you while this campaign is about more than any one issue, Obamacare is still the top issue. Andrew Klavan gives us his take:
