President Obama's approval rating remains near the lowest of his presidency.
According to a CNN poll of polls compiled today, 42 % of Americans think he is doing a good job, but 53% of Americans give Obama's performance a thumbs down. The President's approval rating is up slightly from November and early December when it was at or near an all-time low in many National surveys.
But it's still far below where it stood a year ago when 52 % of Americans approved of the job he was doing. Obama's approval rating dropped last year following a series of controversies, including the botched roll out of the government health care reform.
