(Hamden, CT) -- The drop in President Obama's job approval rating appears to have leveled off. A Quinnipiac University poll of nationwide voters shows that his approval rating is currently 41-percent, with 53-percent disapproving of his performance. That's a slight improvement from a Quinnipiac Poll taken last month, where the president's approval rating hit an all time low of 38-percent. The poll also indicates that 71-percent of voters support increasing the minimum wage, and 58-percent are in favor of a three-month extension of unemployment insurance benefits.
