President Obama has hit another low in another poll, but so have many of his critics in Congress.

The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll gives the president an approval rating of 40%, a record low; Congress has a rating of only 14%, also a low.

NBC News reports that "six in 10 Americans are dissatisfied with the state of the U.S. economy, more than 70% believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, and nearly 80% are down on the country's political system."

The pollsters "attribute the wide discontent to the lingering effects of the Great Recession, as well as a loss of faith in the country's politicians," NBC says.
