For the first time since the State of the Union, voters are weighing in on President Obama's policies and job performance in a new, wide-ranging FOX News poll.

FOX News Radio's Gurnal Scott has the story.

Audio clip:

The President's overall approval rating is better -- up three percentage points to 45% -- the highest since 2013.  There are other issues where voters differ.

FOX News Director of Polling Dana Blanton says voters don't want to see just one segment of the population prosper economically.

(Blanton) "They think government policies should help improve the economy for everyone, rather than targeting actions just for the middle class."

Three in four describe American families as 'dysfunctional' rather than "tight knit".

When it comes to terrorism, 47% feel the President is under-emphasizing the global threat.
