Democrats are more fearful about what 2018 holds than Republicans, according to a poll released early Monday.
The new Axios survey showed 55 percent of Democrats are more hopeful personally about the new year while 44 percent are more fearful.
Among Republicans, 90 percent are more hopeful about 2018, and just 9 percent are more fearful.

And a whopping 68 percent of low-income Americans aren't sure they qualify for tax credits that would subsidize their purchase of health insurance—despite they fact that they almost invariably will qualify, the survey found. That population is most likely to benefit from government subsidies under the health-care …
