AP-GfK Poll: Negative view of health rollout eases

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Even though the government's health care website may be fixed, a new poll finds that President Barack Obama's insurance markets haven't impressed most consumers.

Although negative perceptions of the health care rollout have eased, a new Associated Press-GfK poll finds that two-thirds of Americans say things still aren't going well.

Among those who've tried to sign up, or who live with someone who has, 71 percent have encountered problems.

Still, the share reporting success in signing up has jumped to 40 percent from a meager 24 percent in December.

The poll comes with about 60 days left in open-enrollment season.

The administration is playing catch-up to meet its goal of signing up 7 million people in new insurance exchanges that offer taxpayer subsidized private coverage to middle-class households.
