<span style='font-size: 20pt'>Obama approval ratings hits new lows: What people are saying</span>

The numbers aren’t pretty.

The ABC News/Washington Post and NBC News/Wall Street Journal polls released early Tuesday show President Obama has the lowest approval ratings yet of his presidency.

Democratic pollster Peter Hart has declared that “Obama is no longer the favorite to win re-election,” while ABC News correspondent George Stephanopolous has asked whether this takes Obama into the “incumbent death zone.” German writer Eamonn Fitzgerald has proclaimed, simply: “Hope’s gone.”

Here’s a look at the numbers:

The ABC News/Washington Post poll

— 43 percent of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing, while 53 percent disapprove. (His previous approval low was 52 percent.)

— 62 percent of Americans disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy.

— By 2 to 1, more Americans now say the Obama administration’s economic policies are making the economy worse rather than better.

— Of the more than six in 10 who now disapprove of Obama’s work on jobs and the economy, nearly half of all Americans “strongly” disapprove.

— Six in 10 disapprove of Obama’s work on the federal budget deficit, a percentage that is basically where it was a year ago.

The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll

— 44 percent of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing, while 51 percent disapprove.

— 44 percent of Americans had positive feelings toward Obama, and 44 percent had negative feelings. (The percentage of Americans who views Obama negatively is at an all-time high, while the percentage holding positive feelings is at its lowest point since late 2007, during the campaign.)

— 44 percent of Americans say they would vote for a generic Republican for president in 2012, while 40 percent say they would vote for Obama.

All that adds up to, the Washington Examiner writes, a president in “major trouble” as he faces re-election next year.
