President Barack Obama's job approval stands at 55 percent — just over a month before he leaves office, according to the McClatchy-Marist poll released Tuesday.

The poll finds 42 percent disapprove of his performance during his two terms in office, while 3 percent said they were unsure. It's the highest rating for Obama in the poll since August 2009. At that time, he also received a 55 percent approval rating.

"For all the partisanship and bitter battles during the last eight years, President Obama is receiving strong send-off numbers," Dr. Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion was quoted by The Hill.

Here is how the poll breaks down:

  • Obama's numbers are just below his peak of 56 percent approval he received in April and June of 2009.
  • 16 percent said he would rank among "one of the best presidents," while 24 percent said he was "above average."
  • 17 percent said he was "one of the worst" and another 28 percent ranked him as average; 14 percent said he was "below average."
  • Only 15 percent of Republicans polled approved of his job performance, while 92 percent of Democrats gave him a positive rating.
