By over 2-to-1 margin the uninsured think that Obamacare is a bad idea, by 2.6-to-1 margin they think Obamacare will make them worse off

So Obamacare was done for the uninsured, but many more uninsured think that they Obamacare will make them worse off.  With all the money being spent, the people who we claim to be helping are saying this is making them worse off.  From the WSJ:
Less than a quarter—24%—of uninsured Americans think the health care law is a good idea, and half think it’s a bad idea, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released Wednesday. That’s an 11-point dive in support from three months ago, when a September poll — before the troubled rollout of  the HealthCare.gov marketplace –found that 35% of the uninsured thought it was a good idea, and 32% thought it was a bad idea. . . .  
The number of uninsured adults who think the law will have a positive impact has stayed roughly the same at 20%, indicating that the rise in individuals concerned about the law’s effect comes from people who previously thought it wouldn’t make a difference. 
Some 42% of the uninsured said the health care law will have a negative impact on themselves and their families, compared to about a third who said the same in September. But the number of uninsured who think the law will have a positive impact has risen, too, from 12% in September to 16% this month. About four in one uninsured Americans said the law will not affect them, compared to half who said the same in September. . . .
