Lame Duck or Not?

Why are people so concerned about the Presidents job approval rating? He can't run for a third term so why all the handwringing? He has a majority in both houses so I think the term "lame duck" doesn't apply to this President. When was the last time the Democrat party had control of both the Senate and house? I think if the party in power has control of the house and the presidency, this tends to make the occupant of the oval office more likely to be labeled "lame duck" due to the balance check from the Senate.
