    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US President Barack Obama’s approval rating has fallen significantly, as a majority of US residents participating in a poll criticized his foreign policy, according to a CNN/ORC survey published Friday.

    The poll revealed that 51 percent of US nationals answering a questionnaire disapproved of the US president, fearing Obama was leading the country in the wrong direction.

    According to the survey, 62 percent of those polled criticized Obama’s policy to counter the Islamic State extremist group in Syria and Iraq, while 60 percent disapproved of his policy regarding the successful Iran nuclear agreement.

    The findings of the survey revealed a higher approval rating for Obama's approach to climate change, as 47 percent supported his policies, compared with 41 percent in May.

    The CNN/ORC Poll was carried out among some 1,000 random US nationals by telephone in mid-August.
