Just weeks after President Obama's approval rating hit record lows in the liberal bastion of California, a new survey shows the president in trouble in another deep blue state: New York.

Only 39 percent of registered New York voters surveyed in a Marist College poll said Obama is doing an "excellent" or "good" job, the lowest level for Obama in the poll since the beginning of his presidency.

That's down 6 points from July, when 45 percent said they approved of his job performance. Sixty-one percent of survey respondents judged Obama as doing a "fair" or "poor" job in office.

Earlier this month, only 45 percent of California voters said they approved of how Obama was handling his job, according to a Field Poll released by the Sacramento Bee. That was down 5 percent from June.

The president has seen his support erode steadily throughout the summer as he grappled with a series of international crises, including the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, Russia's repeated incursions into Ukraine, and fighting between Israel and Palestine.

The Marist poll could change the calculus for national Democrats, who had hoped Obama could be an asset in New York during the home stretch of the midterm election campaign.

Still, the president does not appear to be weighing down some Democrats in the state. According to the poll, Sen.
