President Obama's job approval ratings have inched up to 43 percent, his best showing since last October's 46 percent level, according to a Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday.

The president's job approval bottomed out with a record low 41 percent in December in a PPP survey as problems with his signature health care law continued to dog the administration.

Independents also remain problematic; 30 percent approve of the job Obama's doing; 62 percent disapprove.

The PPP results burnish an otherwise damaged job-performance image; Obama's rating in Ohio was 40 percent in Quinnipiac University Polling Institute survey last month. The president hit his all-time low job approval rating in November, with 34 percent, according to Quinnipiac.

In the PPP survey, there was some improvement in how voters view the troubled Obamacare rollout; 39 percent support the Affordable Care Act, with 48 percent opposed, "numbers pretty much consistent with what we've found since 2009," a PPP analysis showed.

In late January, only 32 percent of voters said they felt the rollout had been successful; 62 percent thought it bombed.
