Approval of President Obama’s handling of foreign policy has taken a beating since last month, according to a new NBC/WSJ poll taken after violence erupted last week in Egypt and Libya.

The poll found approval among registered voters dropped to 49 percent, down fromĀ from 54 percent a month earlier, NBC’s FirstReadĀ reports. The fall was steeper among independents, going from 53 percent in August to 41 percent. Even support among Republicans dropped eight points — from 19 percent to 10 percent.
