The latest opinion poll shows US President Barack Obama's job performance rating has dropped to the lowest level of his presidency, as Americans grow less confident in his leadership.

Obama's approval rating is now at 45 percent. That's down 5 points from last month's poll.

For the first time in the survey, more people, 48 percent, say they disapprove of Obama's job performance. 49 percent of those surveyed rate Obama positively on "strong leadership qualities." But, that's down from 70 percent in January last year.

Half of the respondents said they disapprove of Obama's handling of the Gulf oil disaster, including one in four Democrats.
