President Barack Obama's approval rating has dropped to a record low of 42 percent, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University. The survey shows that 48 percent of voters disapprove of his job performance, The Hill reports.

The 42 percent approval rating represents a drop from 46 percent at the beginning of the month.

In a blow to the president’s re-election prospects, 50 percent of respondents don’t think he deserves another term in office, compared to only 41 percent who do. At the beginning of March, 45 percent of voters thought he deserved another term.

Obama is now neck-and-neck with a generic Republican challenger, trailing 36 percent to 37 percent.

"President Barack Obama's approval numbers are at their lowest level ever, slightly below where they were for most of 2010 before he got a bump up in surveys after the November election and into the early part of this year," said Peter Brown, assistant director at the Quinnipiac Polling Institute.
