Poll: Insurance Exchanges Aren’t Wowing Consumers

WASHINGTON (January 27, 2014) The government's troubled health care website may be fixed, but a new poll finds that most consumers aren’t impressed by President Barack Obama's insurance markets, a new poll finds.

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