More than half of American voters disapprove of President Donald Trump's dealings with Russia, a new poll showed.

In the Harvard CAPS/Harris survey released Thursday to The Hill — and conducted a week after Trump's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin — 58 percent do not approve of Trump's handling of U.S.-Russia relations, while 42 percent approve.

The poll also found 59 percent of voters believe Trump came across looking "weak" in the joint news conference with Putin, compared with 41 percent who said he looked "strong."

Here are other findings from the online survey:

  • 47 percent of U.S. voters said Putin gained the most from the summit; 9 percent said Trump benefitted more; and 44 percent said both leaders benefitted equally from the talks.
  • 57 percent believe Trump should have used the joint news conference as an opportunity to denounce Russian interference in U.S. political affairs; 43 percent said he was right not to raise the issue.
  • Trump's favorability rating in foreign affairs fell to 43 percent — down from 47 percent in June; his overall approval stayed steady at 45 percent.
  • 58 percent believe the release an indictment of a dozen Russian officials in the hacking of the Democratic National Committee before the summit was "the right thing to do"; 42 percent believe the release amounted to "the special counsel [Robert Mueller] interfering with the president's ability to conduct foreign policy."
