WASHINGTON (AP) - The share of Americans without health insurance is dropping to the lowest levels since President Barack Obama took office.

With just three weeks left to enroll on the new insurance exchanges, the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, finds that 15.9 percent of U.S. adults are uninsured thus far in 2014, down from 17.1 percent for the last three months -- or calendar quarter-- of 2013.

Gallup said the proportion of Americans who are uninsured is on track to drop to the lowest quarterly level it measured since 2008, before President Obama took office.
