President Barack Obama is once again underwater, according to a new Gallup tracking poll, plummeting to 41 percent approval and 50 percent disapproval, a sharp drop from earlier in the week.

On Monday, a survey showed the president had a sudden uptick in the opinion poll, with 47 percent of respondents approving of the way he was handling his job and 45 percent disapproving. It was the first time since July that more people viewed him favorably than unfavorably, The Hill first reported.

The popularity bounce came on the heels of the payroll-tax cut debate, when Senate Democrats and Obama stood firm to force House Republicans into accepting a two-month deal.

After emerging as the winner in that debate, the president headed to Hawaii on Friday for a Christmas vacation with his family.

Obama, who has spent much of his down time on the golf course and out with his family, has not appeared at a public event since leaving Washington.
