WASHINGTON--President Barack Obama's approval rating has hit a new low as Americans disapprove of his policies on the economy, health care and the crisis in Ukraine, according to a new poll.
Obama's rating sunk to 41 percent from 46 percent in the first three of the year, according to the Washington Post-ABC News poll released late Monday in a worrying sign for allied Democrats facing legislative elections in November.
Only 42 percent of those polled approve of his handling of the economy, 37 percent agree with how he has handled implementation of the new health care law known as Obamacare and 34 percent approve of his stewardship of the crisis involving Ukraine and Russia, said the poll.
