President Barack Obama's approval rating has hit an all-time record low, according to new polls taken this week. Fox News reported on March 5, 2014, that polls have a majority of Americans stating Obama's administration has pretty much failed at creating jobs, improving health care, growing the economy, and lowering the unemployment rate.

The Fox News poll on Wednesday reported that only 38 percent (fewer than four out of every 10) actually approves of Obama's administration. A full 54 percent of Americans disapprove.

Last year, the lowest that Obama's approval rating had been before this poll was back in Nov. of 2013 when it dropped and was 40-55 percent. In Feb. of 2013, 54 percent disapproved and 42 percent approved.

Other important numbers:

  • Democrats: 71 percent approve (record low of 69 percent in Sept. 2013)
  • Republicans: Five percent (new low)
  • Independents: 28 percent approve

Fifty-nine percent of Americans believe that the White House has virtually failed at creating new jobs and getting the unemployment rate down. That number is actually up from about a year and a half ago.

On the subject of health care, only 36 percent of Americans believe that the administration has improved it during Obama's tenure in office. 57 percent believe it has failed to do that.

Just since 2012, the percentage of Democrats who feel the country is better off now, is down from 81 percent to 57 percent.
