President Barack Obama told ABC's Barbara Walters Friday night in an exclusive interview that he is confident his low approval numbers will rise shortly.
“The good thing about when you’re down is that usually, you’ve got nowhere to go but up," the 44th president joked.
Obama's comments come on the heels of new polling this month that indicates he is in a low point in his presidency, following the disastrous roll out of his signature health care law.
According to a recent ABC News / Washington Post poll, 55 percent of Americans disapprove of the job he is doing. That same poll also found that if the election were held today, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney would have ousted Obama.
The Obama's also responded to being booed at a recent college basketball game.
"It's part of the job," first lady Michelle Obama told Walters.
