Obama's popularity continues to thin, according to the survey, which puts his approval rating at 41 percent with 57 percent of those asked saying they actively disapprove of his performance.
The polling, which was carried out between February 19 and 23, showed that the Democratic President's exposure to Washington's bitter political battles is shaping long term views of his White House years.

Fifty-nine percent said that they were somewhat or very disappointed with Obama's presidency. But Obama is retaining support in his political base, with 24 percent of Democrats very satisfied with his performance and 51 percent stating they were somewhat satisfied.

The President's political image has been tarnished by the disastrous rollout of his signature health care law. The sluggish economic recovery, which has left unemployment high, may also be bringing down his ratings.
