      A poll released this week shows President Barack Obama with a record high disapproval rating, CNN reported.

      According to the CNN/ORC poll, 55 percent of Americans do not approve of the president's job performance. Forty-eight percent of Americans believe he is a strong leader, which is a new low.

      At the same time, nearly eight in 10 people polled say President Obama is likeable and large majorities find him compassionate and hard-working.

      The public's opinion about the president's handling of the economy is another story. About 36 percent approve of the way he is handling the economy and 39 percent approve of how he is handling unemployment.
