President Barack Obama’s foreign policy approval rating is at the
lowest point since he took office, according to an NBC/Wall Street
Journal poll.

The poll shows Obama’s foreign policy approval among registered voters
at 49 percent, down from 54 percent one month earlier, representing
the second biggest drop recorded over a one-month period since he took
office. His disapproval rate of 46 percent, which jumped from 40
percent last month, ties the highest number since he took office.

“The fall was steeper among independents, going from 53 percent in
August to 41 percent,” according to NBC News.

The poll was conducted in the days following the attack on the
U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in which four Americans, including ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed.

Obama’s plummeting approval numbers on foreign policy reflect a drop
in U.S. favorability ratings in four key Muslim countries, according
to CNSNews.com. A major Pew Global Attitudes Project survey in June
found that U.S. favorability ratings in Pakistan, Egypt, Jordan and
Lebanon were even lower in 2012 than they were in 2008, the last full year
President George W. Bush was in office.
