Washington, Oct 16(ANI): A poll conducted by Fox News has revealed that the Nobel Prize winning U. S. President Barack Obama is losing his base among American voters, as his ratings have hit an all time 'low'.

The poll found that number of Americans saying that they would vote to re-elect President Obama has dropped from 52 percent, six months ago to 43 percent, which means that more voters would back someone else in the 2012 election than they would back the president.

Another major revelation in the poll was that only 38 percent voters trusted President Obama's advisors, while 45 percent thought that he was "listening to the wrong people".

The poll somewhat illustrated similar figures over Obama's strategies for issues relating to Afghanistan and Iran.

On Afghanistan, 41 percent of Americans said that they approve of the job Obama is doing while 43 percent disapproved of it, on the other hand for his handling of Iran, 44 percent approved and 43 percent disapproved it, Fox News reported.

On Obama's handling of the struggling economy, voters had an equally split reaction with 48 percent approving of his work and 49 percent disapproving it.

The poll also found that Obama's ratings on foreign issues were lower than his overall job ratings, as 49 percent of those reviewed said that they approve of what he is doing, while 45 percent disapprove it. (ANI)
