The survey shows that 54 percent of voters disapprove of the job that Mr. Obama is doing as president, compared with 43 percent who approve.

“These are tough and sobering numbers for the president and his administration,” Democratic pollster Fred Yang, who conducted the survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff, told NBC News.

More than half of all respondents said that this has been one of the worst sessions of Congress, compared with 1 percent who said that it was one of the best.

The study shows that the Democratic Party would do a better job showing concern and passion for people and dealing with immigration and health care. Republicans, meanwhile, are more trusted on the economy.
Half of the respondents said Mr. Obama’s health care law is a bad idea, and 34 percent said it is a good idea, marking a 3-point drop from October.

The poll surveyed 1,000 adults from Dec. 4 to 8 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
