WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says he's now the underdog in the 2012 presidential campaign.

Obama says he doesn't mind being the underdog. And he says it's a role that he is used to.

The president says the next election is going to be about who the public believes shares their vision for the future. He says he believes the American people still back his approach to governing, even if he hasn't always been able to get his measures passed in Congress.

Recent polls show Obama's public approval ratings holding steady in the low 40 percent range.

Obama spoke during an interview Monday with ABC News.
