Days after a fight-to-the-death battle to keep Brett Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court, Democrats made no mention of the historically contentious confirmation fight when they took the microphone at their weekly press conference Tuesday.

They’ve moved on to healthcare, an issue they believe can help them win in the Nov. 6 election.

“For all the noise of the 24-hour news cycle, there is one issue above any other that is going to define the results of the Nov. 6 election and that is healthcare, and that is why we felt it was so important to get the issue before the American people today,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

Democrats didn’t bring up Kavanaugh’s confirmation, after all, but one in their caucus voted against him. Kavanaugh narrowly won confirmation on Saturday after a weekslong fight from Democrats to delay or derail him.

They instead devoted their press conference to a just-defeated measure that would have blocked the Trump administration from allowing states to offer short-term, minimal health insurance policies. Democrats called the plans “junk,” while proponents say the plans offer a temporary, affordable health insurance alternative for those priced out of the marketplace.

“The Trump administration has been sabotaging our healthcare system and rewriting the rules on guaranteed health protections for people with pre-existing conditions and millions of other Americans,” said Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis. “This sabotage has created instability in the healthcare market contributing to widespread premium hikes in 2018.”

Democrats are taking the safe route politically by shifting away from Kavanaugh.

Polls give conflicting information when it comes to how the party fares in the wake of the Kavanaugh nomination. A CNN/SSRS poll this week found critical independent voters disapprove of how Democrats handled the nomination by a 28-point margin.

But a Politico/Morning Consult poll found the Kavanaugh confirmation has motivated Democrats more than Republicans to vote on Nov. 6. The same poll found Kavanaugh’s confirmation was supported by 40 percent of voters and opposed by 46 percent.

But Democrats would rather talk about healthcare, and some of the same polls point to why. Healthcare ranks first, or very high on the list of top voter issues according to many polls, and Democrats have begun touting Obamacare again after years of distancing themselves from the law, and after new polls show Obamacare is becoming more popular.

Schumer on Wednesday accused Republicans of trying to sabotage the law and remove the law’s protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

“The insurance companies say jump, our Republican friends say how high,” Schumer said. “They’ll do nothing to protect people, only to protect the insurance companies. Democrats are fighting for quality, affordable healthcare and come Nov. 6, the difference between the parties on healthcare will be crystal clear.”
