President Biden's foreign affairs approval rating among American adults has plummeted to a new low, a recent Gallup poll shows.

As Biden’s second year in office marches forward, a Gallup poll out this week puts him far below water in the area of foreign policy, with only 40% of Americans approving of his job.

The president’s marks on foreign affairs are a point below his 41% overall approval rating, according to the new poll.

Gallupalso found that 62% of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of the economy, and only 36% of people approve of his handling of Russia. The poll was conducted from Feb. 1-17, before the most recent Russian escalations in Ukraine.

The decline in foreign policy approval comes amid Russian military moves into Ukraine — moves the White House formally recognized as an "invasion" earlier this week.

Biden announced new sanctions against Russia and said that troop movements in Eastern Ukraine marked "the beginning of a Russian invasion of Ukraine." He also announced additional forces to the region but maintained that the U.S. has "no intention" of fighting Russia.

The Ukraine invasion by Russia is already seeing both sides preparing for conflict.
