Harris said the 37 percent of people who approve of Obama's job is the lowest of his presidency so far.

The president's approval ratings may be low, but Congress's approval rating is even worse, Harris Poll said. Only 11 percent of Americans give Congress positive ratings for the job it is doing while 89 percent gave Congress negative marks.

Results are based on online surveys of 3,084 people Oct. 11-18. Harris Interactive did not provide a margin of error.
