The Obama administration has been touting the last-minute enrollment surge for the healthcare law, but that success hasn’t boosted its popularity with voters, according to two new polls.

 

A Gallup survey released on Friday found that 54 percent disapprove of ObamaCare, compared to 43 percent who approve. That’s in line with Gallup’s polling on the law since last November.

Gallup interviewed 1,009 adults for the poll on April 7–8, so the administration’s announcement earlier about a week before that more than 7 million had enrolled in ObamaCare had time to sink in.
