A new NBC/WSJ poll finds President Obama’s approval rating has fallen 6 points since his reelection to 47 percent.
At the same time, his dispproval rating has ticked up 5 points to 48 percent, the poll found.
That puts him underwater for the first time since August last year, when an NBC/WSJ survey found him at 48 percent approval and 49 percent disapproval.
The poll also found that 31 percent of Americans believe the country is headed in the right direction — down from 41 percent last fall — while 61 percent think the nation is headed in the wrong direction. That’s up from 53 percent.
