President Obama / Charles Dharapak, AP

Another poll gives President Obama slightly better numbers than other surveys, but only slightly.

The president has an overall approval rating of 44% in an NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey released Wednesday.

That's a little better than a Washington Post-ABC News poll this week that put Obama's overall rating at 41%, the lowest of his presidency.

Worth noting in the NBC poll: Obama's overall approval rating is higher than his ratings for the handling of the economy (42%) or foreign policy (38%).

Also from NBC News:

"For the first time since early October - before the federal health-care website's disastrous launch became a months-long national story - the president's personal favorable/unfavorable is right-side up, at 44% positive and 41% negative.

"And 36% see the health-care law as a good idea, versus 46% who view it as a bad idea - an improvement from 35% good idea and 49% bad idea back in March."
