Washington, D.C. (AP) -- While millions have visited the Obamacare website to review options, some people say they'd rather take their chances without it.

A new Gallup Poll indicates that more than one in four people say they are more likely to pay a government fine for not having coverage than sign up for insurance.

That's about 28-percent of 48-million uninsured people in the the country.

Under the Affordable Care Act passed in 2010, people without coverage will start facing fines in 2014.

Researchers say they don't see a generational gap, but a partisan gap.

45-percent of uninsured Republicans plan to pay the fine, compared to 31-percent of Independents, and 15-percent of Democrats without benefits.
