The embarrassing glitches and problems with the federal Obamacare exchange has left a sour taste in the mouth of voters, according to a new poll from Fox News, and it appears to be taking a toll on President Barack Obama’s approval rating. The poll, commissioned by Fox News, found that 60% of registered voters say that the implementation of Obamacare is a “joke,” up from 57% when the same question was asked in August. Just 31% believe the implementation efforts are going well, the same percentage as the previous poll. A plurality, 49%, said that the problems with Obamacare’s implementation “are so bad that people should be fired over it,” while 38% say that the issues aren’t bad enough to hold someone accountable.
