Many Republicans have recently lamented how the government shutdown and debt crisis — both brought about by a quixotic tea party-led effort to defund the Affordable Care Act — distracted from the embarrassing rollout. An NBC/Wall Street Journal survey conducted during the shutdown found a significant bump in support for the law, while also showing the GOP's approval numbers falling to an historic low.

Gallup conducted the poll Oct. 18-20 using live phone interviews with 1,528 adults. It has a margin of error of three percentage points.
