The good news for Obama admirers?  He's back at 51 percent overall approval in this survey -- as opposed to quite a lot of early 2013 polling.  The bad news?  His approval rating is upside down on virtually every major issue:
 

Economy: 44% Approve, 54% Disapprove

Federal Budget Deficit: 38% Approve, 58% Disapprove

Taxes: 46% Approve, 52% Disapprove

Illegal Immigration: 44% Approve, 50% Disapprove

Gun Policy: 45% Approve, 52% Disapprove

Health care policy: 44% Approve, 54% Disapprove
