Walker's Approval Rating Remains About 50 Percent

Created: 01/27/2014 2:18 PM WDIO.com

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Half of registered Wisconsin voters approve of the job Gov. Scott Walker is doing.

The Marquette law school released its latest poll numbers Monday. The poll says 51 percent of voters approve of how the Republican governor is handling is job. Another 42 percent disapprove, and 6 percent say they're not sure.

Those numbers are generally in line with Walker's recent ratings. His average approval rating has been 49.9 percent, and his disapproval rating has averaged a little over 44 percent.

Approval ratings refer to how well people think Walker's doing his job. Their favorability impressions of Walker as a person trend similarly.

The poll says 49 percent see him favorably and 44 unfavorably, about the same as in October.

The poll interviewed 802 registered votes between Jan. 20 and Thursday. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
