How Sasha and Malia couldn't care less about their dad's approval ratings

Waukesha, Wisconsin (CNN) – Approval ratings - and the events that led to the most difficult political year of his presidency - mean very little to President Barack Obama's daughters.

They are more concerned, he said, with their teenage pursuits.

"When we sit down at the dinner table, they have some awareness of what's going on. And we have great conversations although mostly it's about history more than about what's going on right now," Obama told CNN in an exclusive interview airing Friday.

"But it's true. Look, they're teenagers. They're fully absorbed with their lives, what's going on at school."
