After Saturday’s South Carolina primary, the Republican presidential race has realistically narrowed to one candidate, Donald Trump, who has expressed ambivalent feelings about the Affordable Care Act and two, Sens. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, who want to erase it. Trump scored a strong victory this weekend over Rubio and Cruz, who essentially tied for second.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton, who wants to improve and expand Obamacare, won a significant victory Saturday over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a champion of single-payer government health insurance, in the Nevada caucuses.
