I'm at a loss

I hope that one of you has a solution to my problem and that is when my 88 samurai (bone stock under the hood) is running with the clutch pedal out everything electrical is extremely weak but when the pedal is depressed it seems like everything is fine, any advice greatly appreciated!!!

Is there a noticeable difference in RPMs from when the clutch pedal is out to being pressed?
