President Obama is ending the year at an all-time low, according to a new poll from CNN/ORC International.
The poll finds Obama with a 41 percent approval rating, which matches his lowest point — reached last month — in the same survey. The president has a 56 percent disapproval rating.
Obama slid 14 points over the course of a year that was dominated by the botched rollout of his health care reform law and controversy over the National Security Agency's surveillance programs. In January, following his reelection, Obama held a 55 percent approval rating.
