46 million Americans, or 15 percent of the population, are now considered at least nominally poor -- a record number reached during Obama's first term.

Almost half of these impoverished Americans -- more than 20 million, according to the latest census data -- are considered "extremely poor," with incomes of less than half the official poverty threshold.
