President Barack Obama is struggling to overcome widespread pessimism about the economy and deep frustration with Washington, notching the lowest job-approval ratings of his presidency in a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.
The results suggest Mr. Obama could weigh on fellow Democrats in midterm elections this fall, particularly in the conservative states that will play a large role in deciding whether his party retains its Senate majority.
Mr. Obama's job approval ticked down to 41% in March from 43% in January, marking a new low. 
Oh wait, new poll:  It's a comeback, Baby!
President Barack Obama is rebounding from record-low approval ratings as he remedies the botched rollout of his health-care website and moves past the budget standoffs of the last several years.
Less than eight months before the November midterm elections, Americans are evenly split, with 48 percent approving of Obama’s job performance, up from 42 percent in December -- the biggest positive change of his presidency, according to a Bloomberg National Poll.
The Bloomberg poll doesn't contain alot of good news other than an apparent small reversal of fortunes to "not good" from "terrible," but give Al Hunt & Co. kudos for spinning it well - America's split.  Well, not actually, if you read the details; and, 48% is not a winning margin, but I guess if you round up to 50% you can call it a split.  Does Bloomberg really think that half of all Americans are just ducky with the President?  They're kidding themselves.
