Many observers see 2013 as the worst year of President Obama's tenure in the White House.
FOX News Radio's Mike Majchrowitz reports from the White House on whether the President should expect 2014 to be any better:
History suggests hoping for a turn around in 2014 might be wishful thinking.
(Sabato) "It wasn't nearly as bad as 2014 is going to be."
University of Virginia Political Science Professor Larry Sabato says 2013 was the President's best chance to score significant second term achievements. It only gets harder now.
(Sabato) "2014 is an election year and traditionally election years are even less productive than the prior year."
Political Professor Steve Schneck with Catholic University is a bit more optimistic for the President.
(Schneck) "He's reached bottom, I mean, his numbers are so low right now it's hard to imagine them going any lower."
But Scheneck does not see the President returning to the days of high approval ratings.
