March 5 (UPI) -- A poll released Wednesday indicated U.S. President Barack Obama's approval rating has hit an all-time low.

First the first time in Fox News poll history, fewer than four in ten respondents said they approve of Obama's job performance.

Thirty-eight percent said they approve of his performance and 54 percent said they disapprove. Obama's previous low rating was 40 percent to 55 percent in November 2013.

The poll indicates 71 percent of Democrats, 28 percent of Independents and five percent of Republicans approve of Obama.

Regarding healthcare, 36 percent said they thought the government has helped improve it, while 57 said it hasn't.

The poll was conducted between Sunday and Tuesday by calling 1,002 randomly chosen registered voters. There was a three percent margin of error.
