According to a new poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation, 55 percent of people in the United States say they have been following news coverage of healthcare.gov's many problems and reports of people being dropped from their current insurance plans "very" or "fairly" closely. Not coincidentally,  the percentage of people who say they have an "unfavorable" view of the Affordable Care Act rose to 49 percent this month. (It was at 43 percent before the website launched.) This probably will not continue forever.
