It's been so long coming that people probably believe the recovery is occurring in spite of Obama, not because of him.
Or, they're just not feeling the so-called "recovery." Despite all the recent employment "growth" data, labor force participation has shown no improvement, while the number of full-time jobs declined by 523,000. Most of the jobs that were created were low-wage and/or part-time, so it isn't surprising that this "recovery" hasn't translated into great approval ratings for Obama.
It's worth noting that while the current unemployment rate is 6.2 (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tag/unemployment-rate-june/), including people who would like a job but haven't looked for one recently due to discouragement (which are not included in the unemployment rate) raises the rate to 9.6% (http://seekingalpha.com/article/2299505-the-real-real-unemployment-rate-for-june-2014-9_6-percent), and adding in those employed part-time for economic reasons only gets it up to 12.1% (often referred to as underemployment) (http://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/empsit.pdf (page 27, U-6)).
------
Granted, this number was significantly worse back in '10 and '11, but it is still too high - it was at 7.9% in Jan. 2008, just as the recession was beginning (it peaked at around 17% in 2011) (http://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/empsit.pdf).

Even though most people don't know what the underemployment rate is, that doesn't change the fact that 12% of the country is experiencing some level of unemployment (the rate is even higher in some states) that they were told they wouldn't be experiencing six years into Obama's presidency (Obama's 2008 promise of a speedy recovery in which un/underemployment would not significantly raise from where they were in Jan. 2009 has not been forgotten by most), and that's what people are witnessing in their cities, families, and neighborhoods - people giving up, people settling for part-time work - and (since we are so far in Obama's presidency) people view it as 'Sure, it's a slow recovery, but it's really helping yet and won't be soon' or 'Sure it's a very slow recovery, but it would have happened without Obama' or even 'bah, it's too slow to even be called a recovery'. Take it all into account, and it's easy to see why Obama's approval ratings haven't skyrocketed.

wow, Obama is steadily doing better in the Gallup rolling polls. Also, on RCP, he's underwater by 9.7, but it was 13 a few weeks ago.

Barack Obama's unpopularity in Kentucky continues to make the landscape difficult for Democrats- only 32% of voters approve of the job he's doing to 63% who disapprove. 38% of the voters who disapprove of McConnell also disapprove of Obama, and among that group McConnell is receiving 20% of the vote, which is how you get to 44% of the vote with only a 37% approval rating.

Obama's poll numbers aren't really that bad.  They're not as bad as the press he gets, and they're not as bad as the sounds the pundits make dwelling on this. 

The only Presidential candidate that excites anyone is Hillary.  The entire GOP stable is the Sominex Squad, and some of these guys have a real unsavory side that will stun folks (Christie, Walker, Perry).  Rand Paul generates enthusiasm, but he's also staunchly opposed by the GOP establishment. 

There's not going to be a lot of swing for a while.  We're locked into ideological and partisan regularity on both sides.  It's hard to make me see what would cause a huge faction of Republicans or Democrats to leave their respective parties.  Most of the conservative Democrats bailed by 2000, and most of the moderate Republicans were wiped out in 2006.

59/60% disapproval is pretty bad.

For a President who's been in office for 6 years, it isn't.

What polls (if any) are asking about the degree of approval/disapproval?

I bet most of the approvals are from people who approve from mostly approve to strongly approve, while a large segment of disapprovals come from "somewhat disapprove" (who voted for Obama in 2008 with great enthusiasm, but also voted for him in 2012 as simply a vote for the lesser of two bad options).

I think Obama's job approval is like Obamacare's approvals, in the sense that many disapprove, but for different reasons when asked further.

Obamacare will be his most obvious legacy.

What has gone wrong?

Scandals? This administration is squeaky clean. I can't see anyone lining his pockets because of closeness to the Presidency. People may be seeing their investments gain value, but that is not because of the President choosing winners and losers.

Military disasters? Diplomatic debacles? No. Some things will spiral out of control. The US does not own Iraq or Syria.

Poor economic stewardship? One can blame slow growth in pay to decisions of the GOP and related organizations. Of course the Right wants people to work longer and harder for less for greater profits for elites.   

So he is unable to get Congress to do anything. Such was no problem in his first two years of office, and we well know what the ethos of the GOP is -- enrich the right people and all is wonderful, fail to put enriching extant elites above all else and you will regret being born. Nobody ever makes progress arguing against "My Way or the Highway".  Moses was never going to succeed in softening the heart of the Pharaoh. Moses took "the highway".
