President Barack Obama's approval rating on foreign policy has hit the lowest mark of his presidency, a new CNN/ORC International poll shows.

A day before the president takes his case for military action against Syria to the American people, the poll shows that only 40% of those surveyed approve of Obama's performance on foreign policy. That number has declined over the course of the year, from 54% in January. Only three in 10 approve of how Obama is handling the crisis in Syria, the poll indicates, and 63% disapprove.

The poll also shows that the proportion of Americans who approve of Obama's overall performance is holding steady at 45%, the same rating as in CNN's last poll on the subject in June.

Obama talks to CNN's Wolf Blitzer about the crisis in Syria in an interview airing at 6 p.m. ET. Follow complete coverage on CNN.com, CNN TV and CNN Mobile.
