Forty-one percent of those living in 438 key counties that helped propel Donald Trump’s presidential victory a year ago say the nation is worse off now than when he became commander in chief, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Only 32 percent say the country is better off now than it was before he took office. Twenty-six percent say things have remained the same in the U.S.

Here are other highlights from the poll, which surveyed people in counties that either flipped from voting Democratic in the 2012 election to Republican in 2016 or recorded a significant boost for Trump last year:

  • 53 percent say Trump does not have a clear agenda on how to deal with the major issue facing the U.S.
  • 48 percent approve of his job performance, while 50 percent disapprove
  • 48 percent gave former President Barack Obama a positive rating, compared to 37 percent who rated him negatively
  • 56 percent said they were satisfied that Trump was improving the economy, while 41 percent were dissatisfied
  • 55 percent were satisfied that Trump was keeping American safe, while 43 percent were dissatisfied
  • 47 percent were satisfied with Trump being commander in chief, while 51 percent were dissatisfied.
  • 43 percent were satisfied with Trump being honest and truthful, while 55 percent were dissatisfied.

The poll, conducted Nov. 1-4, surveyed 800 people. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.46 percent.
