Democrats needed only a "mildly competent implementation" of Obamacare to soar in the polls and toss Republicans out of office, "The Daily Show’s" Jon Stewart said Monday night.

But they couldn't do even that.

"What kind of computer program forces you to marry your own children?" Stewart needled.

He pointed out that a recent poll shows more Americans think Obamacare has been repealed than have been able to sign up for the program. Less than one in 10 people has successfully enrolled.

He even noted that the Delaware woman the president highlighted during the news conference, who had navigated the sign-up process, took seven days to complete the task.

In the end, Stewart posed a biting rhetorical question: "So, how are the Democrats going to spin this turd?"
