According to an analysis by CNN, more than 344-thousand people have signed up for Obamacare through state-run marketplaces.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) -- The Wall Street Journal is reporting, as of last week, that fewer than 50,000 people have successfully enrolled for insurance through the federally-run Obamacare website.

Health and Human Services spokeswoman Joanne Peters could not confirm those numbers. But Peters does say that due to problems with the website, enrollment was expected to be low.

According to an analysis by CNN, more than 344-thousand people have signed up for Obamacare through state-run marketplaces, but have not yet technically completed the enrollment process. That number does not include applications submitted in paper, or by phone.
