The approval rating of US President Barack Obama has dropped to an all time low of 44 per cent, down 24 points since his all-time high last April.

According to the latest CBC News poll, President Obama's overall job approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 44 per cent, down five points from late March, just before the health bill's passage in the House of Representatives. It's down 24 points since his all-time high last April.

Conducted between March 29 and April 1, the poll found Americans unhappier than ever with Obama's handling of health care - and still worried about the state of the economy.

Fortyone per cent of those polled said they disapproved of the president's performance, it said.

On health care, Obama's approval rating is even lower - and is also a new all-time low. Only 34 per cent approved, while 55 per cent said they disapproved.

Further just 42 per cent said they approved of how Obama is handling the economy, only one point above January's all-time low; the poll said.
