President Obama’s polling numbers are extremely low on hot political issues such as illegal immigration, the fight against Islamic State terrorism and government surveillance.

In a CNN poll published today, only 36 percent approve of Obama’s actions on illegal immigration, 32 percent support his fight against ISIS, and 29 percent support his positions on government surveillance.

Obama’s approval ratings on illegal immigration are down four points from February, as his executive actions have bogged down in the courts. His ratings on fighting ISIS are down eight points from February 2015.

The last time the CNN polled Obama’s views on government surveillance was in June 2013 where he earned a 35 percent approval rating.

Overall, Obama has a 45 percent approval rating which is down three points from a CNN poll in April.
