Obama: 'Actually, I'm doing pretty good' as president

In his sixth year as president, Obama says he's "doing pretty good."

President Obama told a group of donors at a dinner benefiting the Democratic National Committee Monday that he "loves the work" of being president, and that it's "an extraordinary privilege to every single day work on behalf of the American people."

When people ask him how he's doing, he says, "actually, I'm doing pretty good."

While Obama may be doing good work by serving the American people, the public doesn't think he's performing particularly well in his job: Obama's approval rating has sunk to an all-time low.
