A new poll has found that the number of Americans who think President Barack Obama is "one of the worst presidents" in history has increased by 5 percent over the past year.

The Fox News survey of 1,027 registered voters reveals that more than one in four respondents, a record high of 28 percent, believe he'll go down as one of the worst. In a similar survey taken last December, 23 percent of respondents felt that way.

In 2009, after less than a year in office, only 16 percent felt that he would turn out to be one of the worst presidents.

The new Fox survey, conducted Dec. 14-16, also found that 16 percent of respondents view Obama as "a below average" president. Last year, 14 percent held that view.

Thirty-three percent, meanwhile, rated Obama as an "average president," compared to 19 percent who said the same thing last year. In this year's survey, only 16 percent described him as a "great president," compared to the 2012 survey when 29 percent predicted that he would turn out to be a "great president."

Taking the rating a step further, six percent of respondents described him as the "greatest" president, compared to 12 percent who saw him that way a year ago.

When questioned about his trustworthiness, a record low of 49 percent said he is not "honest and trustworthy," compared to 45 percent who still believe he is.

Another 10 percent of respondents who voted for Obama said they actually regret their votes now.

The Fox poll also asked respondents to look ahead to 2016. Sixty-eight percent said they would prefer former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic presidential nominee over Vice President Joe Biden, who pulled only 12 percent support.

On the Republican side, 16 percent said they favor New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as the GOP nominee over all the other potential candidates. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, all drew 12 percent support, while Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul collected 11 percent and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio 8 percent.
