A majority of people in the United States still has negative views of ObamaCare, but those perceptions have weakened in the last month.
Sixty-six percent of people said the healthcare markets still aren’t going well, according to an Associated Press-GFK poll released Monday. That’s 10 percentage points down, however, from the 76 percent who said the same in December.
More people, 40 percent, now report they’ve had success signing up for insurance, compared to only 24 percent who said they had success last month.
The public has also continued to encounter problems with the federal portal, HealthCare.gov.
People who have signed up for the insurance support ObamaCare more than the general public. Only 27 percent of the public backs the law, while 46 percent of enrollees do.
Among the uninsured population, 30 percent supported the law, while 33 percent opposed it.
This poll comes with about three months remaining until the open enrollment period closes at the end of March. Uninsured people who don’t enroll by then will face a tax penalty.
On Friday, the Department of Health and Human Services announced 3 million people so far have signed up for private insurance through the federal and state exchanges.
