Meanwhile, pretty sure national QHPs have broken 2.4 million (1.8M via HC.gov)
2018 MIDTERM ELECTION
Time: D H M S
Just another update: I'm fairly certain that QHP selections via HealthCare.Gov (covering 39 states) has broken 1.7 million people, with an additional 500,000 having enrolled via the 12 state-based exchanges for a total of around 2.2 million as of tonight.
The confirmed tally stands at just over 1.4 million thanks to a small update out of Minnesota.
I expect things to slow down significantly over the holiday weekend (Thursday - Sunday) before ramping back up again next week.
UPDATE: As of Wednesday night (11/23/16), I estimate the grand total is now up to around 2.4 million nationally, 1.8 million via HC.gov.
