President Barack Obama’s job-approval rating among California voters now stands at 52 percent, according to a new poll, 10 points lower than February.

The Field Poll's June measure determined the biggest drop in President Obama’s job appraisals is among those who have historically given him the highest marks, including registered Democrats and voters under the age of 40.

At 52 percent, the job-approval rating ties for the third-lowest approval rating Obama has measured in the poll of California voters.

In the "honeymoon period" following Obama’s 2008 election, the Field measured the president’s job-approval rating at 65 percent. The president's job-approval rating among California voters reached its low point in September 2011, when 46 percent approved of his job performance.

The poll surveyed 846 registered California voters between June 26 and July 21. It has a margin of error of plus-minus 3.5 percentage points.
