(KXAN) — Forty-nine percent of U.S. adults approve of President Joe Biden’s overall job performance, a new NBC News poll shows.

It’s a slim margin, however, as 48% say they disapprove.

That’s down from April’s poll, when 53% of adults approved of Biden’s job performance. Some of the biggest declines for Biden are coming from independents, residents living in rural areas and white Americans.

Fifty-three percent of those polled say they approve of President Joe Biden’s handling of the coronavirus in the U.S., while 44% say they disapprove.

Sixty percent of Americans also said they disapprove of Biden’s handling of Afghanistan. Meanwhile, only 29% of Americans think the country is headed in the right direction, while 54% say they’re worried about the country’s future.
