New Poll: One-Third Of Americans Unable To Sign Up Through Obamacare Website

Obamacare continues to be profoundly unpopular with the American people, and its approval ratings continue to plummet. Just 28% of Americans support the law, a new Associated Press poll finds, compared with 43% in opposition

But another part of the AP poll revealed something that speaks to the way that the law disrupted the health insurance market and failed Americans over and over again:

More than one-third of those who said they or someone in their household tried to enroll, were ultimately unable to do so. For the White House, it's an uncomfortable reminder of the technical problems that paralyzed the website for weeks after it went live last fall.


The pattern illustrates why the health care law remains a favored target for Republicans seeking a Senate majority in the midterm elections.

28% support, 43% oppose, and more than one-third of people had someone in their household attempt to sign up for Obamacare and fail to do so. As the AP notes, it's no wonder why Republicans have made the law a favored political target: Americans hate it, and it has failed them.
