Americans also blame Congress for not preventing automatic federal spending cuts.
The president's approval rating fell to its lowest level in the Gallup three-day tracking poll for the period between Feb. 29 and March 2, from 53 percent to 46 percent, and the lowest since his re-election. His disapproval rating also hit 46 percent, up from 40 percent the week before.
The dip came after Obama and congressional leaders failed to reach a deal that would prevent triggering the sequester. But he's not shouldering all of the blame. According to a CBS News poll published March 4, 38 percent of Americans place more blame on Republicans compared to 33 percent who blame Obama.
