President Barack Obama’s job approval among American voters dropped to a new low with 38 percent of voters approving the President’s job and a whopping 57 percent disapproval rating, a new Quinnipiac University poll published Tuesday shows.

Obama scores extremely high negative scores of 6 – 92 percent among Republicans (6-92),among independent voters (30-62) and among men (31-64). Unsurprisingly, the President’s approval rating remains a high 76 – 18 percent among Democrats and 85 – 9 percent among black voters.

A majority of 52-44 of American voters say President Obama is not honest and trustworthy and 51-47 now see him as a weak leader, according to the poll.

“A rousing chorus of Bah! Humbug! for President Barack Obama as American voters head into the holidays with little charitable to say about the president,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “President Obama could be pretty lonely during his last two years in office if voters decide they want Republican majorities in the House and Senate.”

The survey also asked respondents about the latest deal reached with Iran in Geneva. American voters give the president a negative 40 – 48 percent approval for his handling of the situation in Iran and voters are more divided on the latest agreement to limit Iran’s nuclear weapons, with 44 percent supporting the agreement and 46 percent opposed, according to Quinnipiac.

Nonetheless, a majority of 45% of voters believe the agreement with Iran makes America less safe, with 37 percent – including 56% of Democrats – agreeing with Sec. Kerry’s claim that the deal makes the U.S. safer.

By a 52-29 percentage margin, voters say Israel will be less safe because of the agreement.
