As President Obama nears his second inaugural ceremony on Monday, he will face a nation that is mostly dissatisfied with the current state of the economy. The new NBC/WSJ poll shows that while the president still remains popular with a job approval rating at 52% among all adults, only 35% think the country is headed in the right direction. This number is down six points from December 2012 which proves that the economy is still the top concern among Americans.
