First he picks the wrong team to win the Super Bowl, and now this: the President's approval rating has hit a new low, according to a Marist University poll out today.

The poll indicates that while 44 percent of registered voters approve of Obama’s job so far, 47 percent aren’t fans, representing the worst rating the president has received since taking office. The slip is primarily due to a shift among independents; only 29 percent of independents polled said they approve of Obama’s performance, a steep drop from the 53 percent who said they did in April of 2009.
