Obama Approval Underwater Despite Better Economy

A new Quinnipiac poll finds President Obama with a negative 44% to 48% approval rate.

Key finding: Obama a negative 40% to 52% percent approval for the way he is handling foreign policy, his worst grade ever on that score.

Said pollster Peter Brown: "President Obama is in a slump, under water for the last two surveys. His negative ratings come at the same time that voters are becoming more optimistic about the economy, saying 35% to 22% that it's improving, with 43% saying it's unchanged. Voter optimism about the economy usually helps presidential approval numbers."
