Gallup also added that, according to previous polling, less than half of the uninsured seeking medical coverage said they would do so through an exchange website.

Among the uninsured Americans who did visit an exchange website, 59 percent had a negative experience and 39 percent had a positive one. In October and November, 63 percent had a negative experience, while 33 percent had a positive one.

Gallup surveyed 1,563 adults who do not have health insurance via phone Dec. 1-29 with a margin of error plus or minus three percentage points. For the 454 adults who visited an exchange website, Gallup had a margin of error plus or minus six percentage points.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
