The percentage of likely voters who say the United States is headed in the wrong direction has reached 60 percent, according to a new Zogby Interactive poll.

The figure represents the highest percentage to disapprove of the country's direction since the beginning of Barack Obama's administration. It's an increase of five points from three weeks ago.

Just 29 percent of likely voters responded that the nation is going in the right direction, while 12 percent said they were unsure.

The president's overall approval numbers during the same time frame dropped slightly to 46 percent approving and 53 percent disapproving.

Republicans have assumed a two-point lead, 43-41, over Democrats in the generic ballot of party preference leading toward November's congressional elections, Zogby concluded based on a June 25-28 poll of 2,061 voters.

Zogby's online panel is representative of the U.S. adult population. The survey's margin of error is plus or minus 2.2 percentage points.
