Poll: Sign-ups rise but little love for health law

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama celebrated when sign-ups for his health care law topped 8 million, exceeding expectations.

But a new poll shows Americans remained unimpressed.

The Associated Press-GfK poll finds that public opinion is still deeply negative on the Affordable Care Act, Obama's signature effort to cover the uninsured.

Forty-three percent oppose the law, compared with just 28 percent in support.

That shows why the health care law remains a favorite target for Republicans seeking a Senate majority this fall.

The poll did have a bright spot for the administration: Those who signed up for coverage aren't reeling from sticker shock. Most said they found premiums in line with what they expected, or even lower.
