A day before President Obama is scheduled to deliver a prime time address on Syria, a new national poll shows his approval rating on foreign policy has hit an all-time low.
Only four in 10 approve of the job Obama is doing on foreign policy, while 57 percent disapprove, according to the CNN/ORC
International survey of more than 1,000 adults.
"President Obama's approval rating on foreign affairs has continued its steady decline - from 54 percent in January to 49 percent in April, 44 percent in June, and just 40 percent now," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "This may be a troubling sign for a president who in past polls had always scored his highest ratings for his handling of foreign affairs."

Obama is pushing for congressional authorization for U.S. military action to punish Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime for allegedly using chemical weapons in the ongoing civil war in Syria.
The poll also found that just 31 percent of respondents approve of the president's policies and actions regarding Syria, and 63 percent disapprove.
The president's overall approval rating stands at 45 percent, with 52 percent saying they disapprove of the job he's doing. The 45 percent approval rating is unchanged from CNN's previous poll, which was conducted in June.
