The people of the United States of Americado not approve of Barack Obama as their president, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released on Tuesday.

Obama’s approval rating is down to its “lowest point ever.”Just 39 percent of American voters are satisfied with his performance ever since he was re-elected for a second term. The president’s rating is down from 45 at the beginning of October.

As far as the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare is concerned, only 19 percent believe the quality of healthcare will improve in the next year, while43 percent say it will get worse and 33 percent are of the view that Obamacare will not affect their lives in any way.

Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said the poll results indicate the U.S. President’s marriage with his people is losing its spark.

Like all new presidents, President Barack Obama had a honeymoon with American voters, with approval ratings in the high 50s. As the marriage wore on, he kept his job approval scores in the respectable, though not overwhelming, 40s. Today, for the first time it appears that 40 percent floor is cracking," Malloy stated.

Previously, Obama’s lowest rating was 55 - 41 percent, which was recorded in October, 2011.

Last week, two separate surveys conducted by Pew Research Center and NBC/Wall Street Journal also found that Obama's second term ratings followed a “downward trajectory.”

PEW recorded his overall job rating to be just 41 percent, down 14 percent since last December. NBC/WSJ showed an all-time low 51 percent, attributing the results to the National Security Agency (NSA) snooping scandal, Obama’s decision to support Syrian rebel forces and the implementation of the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare.
