Despite the White House’s recent announcement about the 8 million enrollees into the president’s signature health care plan, only 12 percent of newly surveyed Americans say Obamacare is a success.

Nearly half say it’s too early in the process to decided whether the health care package is a success or not — while 4 in 10 say it’s an outright failure, CNN reported.

The findings were revealed in a new CNN/ORC International survey that shows how Americans regard Obamacare so far.

Fully 38 percent want a full repeal of the law, and 20 percent say the country should just go back to the system that was in place before Obamacare came along, CNN said.

Democrats, however, are much more on board with Obamacare than Republicans.

Nearly 9-in-10 Democrats say Obamacare is worthy of keeping. But only 55 percent of independents say the same — and only 38 percent of Republicans believe similarly, CNN reported. More than 6-in-10 Republicans say an outright repeal is needed.

“Your feelings about the law are influenced by your station in life,” said Keating Holland, CNN’s polling director. “There is general support for the law among young people and among people who are approaching retirement age. Support for repeal is higher among people between 35 and 49 years old, and highest among senior citizens, who are roughly split on what Congress should do.”
