President Obama’s approval rating has fallen below 40 percent for the first time in two years, a Gallup poll showed Tuesday.

In its daily poll documenting a three-day average, Obama’s job approval rating is now at 39 percent. Fifty-three percent disapprove of his job performance. The poll's margin of error is 3 percentage points.

The last time the president's approval rating was that low was the summer of 2011, according to Gallup's numbers.

Nearly a year ago — the week before Christmas — his approval rating was close to 60 percent.

Obama’s latest numbers were reported after a tough few days for him and his administration.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Administrator Marilyn Tavenner testified before Congress last week on the technical issues plaguing ObamaCare website,

The president has also received sharp criticism from Republicans for not honoring the promise he made to Americans before in the run-up to the healthcare reform law’s passage and his 2012 reelection campaign.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll last week documented Obama’s approval rating at 42 percent, an all-time low in their decades of polling.
