On the first anniversary of the Obamacare rollout, many Americans have lost whatever loving feeling they once had for the law, according to a new Gallup poll out Monday. 

According to the poll, 37 percent of Americans approve of the Affordable Care Act, which is one percentage point less than the previous low. That was in January of 2014, following a rollout plagued with issues. Fifty-five percent of Americans now say they disapprove of the law. 

The poll also found a dip in approval among non-whites, who are still the law's strongest supporters. At 56 percent, the non-white approval rate is below 60 percent for the first time. 

The poll comes just in time for the new enrollment period, which began on Saturday and goes through February. It reached 828 people by phone and had a margin of error of four points.
