President Obama's popularity has sunk to its lowest-ever level in a new Quinnipiac poll of Ohio voters, with 61 percent disapproving of his job performance.

That's also his lowest score in any state polled by Quinnipiac — in a state Obama won in 2012.

But the poll had even worse news for the White House. In the past, when Obama's job approval had sunk below 50 percent, people still were positive on his personal character.

Not this time.

Today's poll shows that 57 percent of Ohio respondents did not feel Obama was "honest and trustworthy."

What could be causing such low approval numbers? Obamacare seems to be the answer.

The poll shows that 59 percent of Ohio residents oppose Obamacare and 45 percent believe they expected the quality of their health care to be worse a year from now.

With numbers like these, its no wonder why Obama went to California this week.
