Health Exchanges Get A Thumbs Down In Early Reviews

WASHINGTON (October 10, 2013)-- The government's new health insurance marketplaces are drawing criticism in early reviews, but a new poll finds that people are at least checking them out.

According to an AP-GfK poll, 7 percent of Americans reported that somebody in their household has tried to sign up for insurance through the health care exchanges, and while that's a small percentage, it could represent more than 20 million people.

Three-fourths of those who tried to sign up reported problems, though, and that's reflected in the underwhelming reviews.

Overall, just 7 percent of Americans say the rollout of the health exchanges has gone well.

Far more deemed it a flop.
