Thirty-seven percent of Americans approve of Donald Trump's job performance as president, while 57 percent disapprove, according to a new CNN poll.

The figures are identical to the marks he received in late September, according to CNN. However, those who say things in the U.S. are going well has dropped from 53 percent in August to 46 percent.

Here are highlights from the survey:

  • 38 percent believe the president's policies will move the U.S. in the right direction, compared to 56 percent who disagree.
  • 32 percent approve how he is handling his relationship with Congressional Republicans, while 54 percent do not.
  • 47 percent say they have more confidence in Republicans in Congress to handle major issues, compared to 30 percent who say they have confidence in Trump. Seventeen percent don't trust either one.
  • 47 percent said the government and society can take action that will help prevent mass shootings, while 49 percent disagree.
  • 86 percent oppose a ban preventing all Americans from owning guns, compared to 11 percent who approve of it.

The poll, conducted Oct. 12-15, surveyed 1,010 people. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

The rest of the poll breaks down like this:

  • 63 percent support a ban on bump fire stocks.
  • 32 percent approve of Trump's environmental policies.
  • 44 percent of those surveyed approve of Trump's handling of the aftermath of recent hurricanes.
