Obama's Approval Rating on Gun Control Plummets

Nearly half of voters think President Obama's doing a poor job at handling gun control, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll released Tuesday. Only 37 percent of voters give Obama positive reviews for the way he's handling gun control as opposed to the 46 percent of voters who give him a poor rating.

The president's poor approval numbers have been climbing over the past few months. They were 34 percent in February and have climbed 13 points since then.

The poll also found voters trust Republicans slightly more than Democrats in regard to gun control since the beginning of this year.

Obama's approval is shrinking on other issues, too. The percentage of voters who give him good or excellent reviews for immigration has gone down from 43 percent in February to 37 percent. Forty-three percent of voters now give the president a poor rating -- up 11 percent from April.

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on May 31-June 1. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
