Via Jennifer Rubin, Rasmussen reports:

Overall, 45% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. That matches the lowest level of total approval yet measured for this president. Eighty-one percent (81%) of Democrats approve as do 33% of unaffiliated voters. Eighty-three percent (83%) of Republicans disapprove.

Among all voters, 54% now disapprove.

Byron York takes a look inside a recent Gallup poll that shows disapproval of Obama is broad-based among almost all age and income groups:

For the first time in the White House, Obama is below 50 percent with every age group of Americans except those between 18 and 29. He's at 48 percent with people in the 30-49 range; 46 percent with people in the 50-64 range; and 42 percent with people 65 and over. Among those 18-29, he's at 61 percent. ...

Among income groups: For the first time in the White House, Obama is below 50 percent with every income group except those making less than $2,000 a month.
