Poll: Health care law still fails to impress

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new poll on the health care overhaul finds Americans are still waiting to be impressed.

Despite more than 8 million sign-ups, the Associated Press-GfK poll finds just 28 percent in support of the law while 43 percent are opposed.

Even with the strongly negative sentiment, most Americans who have enrolled say the price is about what they expected to pay or a little less.

But even that was diminished by another finding: 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 HealthCare.gov website for weeks after it went live last fall.
