On today's What America's Thinking, a new Hill/HarrisX poll finds Americans are split on when the Supreme Court should have heard the case against the Affordable Care Act. Sophia Tesfaye, Deputy Politics Editor at Salon.com, joins Hill TV to talk about the fate of Obamacare and how the current healthcare crisis could change the way voters think about the top issue. This survey was conducted online within the United States from March 22-23, 2020 among 1,002 registered voters by HarrisX. The sampling margin of error of this poll is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points. The results reflect a nationally representative sample of registered voters. Results were weighted for age within gender, region, race/ethnicity, income, political party, and education where necessary to align them with their actual proportions in the population. The Justice Department is dropping the criminal case against President Donald Trump's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, whose lies about his contacts with Russia prompted Trump to fire him three years ago and special counsel Robert Mueller to flip him to cooperate in the Russia investigation.
The request to drop the case, filed with a federal judge in DC District Court, is a sudden end to a protracted legal battle that's lately been fertile ground for Trump to attack the early Russia investigation and former FBI leadership he dislikes.
The court must still formally approve the request.
