It’s also the lowest approval rating for the president in more than a year, matching his score in April 2012.

The data suggests that the White House’s recent push on the economy has been unable to slow a falling approval widely attributed to a number of recent controversies, from revelations about top-secret National Security Agency surveillance programs to political targeting by the IRS.

So folks will say, “its a Fox News poll, what do you expect”, Well seems The Gallup Obama approval tracking poll is showing a similar result.
