Poll: Wis. residents approve of Obama, Walker

MILWAUKEE (AP) - A new poll says Wisconsin voters generally approve of President Barack Obama and Gov. Scott Walker.

The Marquette University poll released Tuesday says 48% of respondents approve of the job Obama is doing, while 45% disapprove. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.1%age points.

Those numbers are down since October. Obama's approval rating then was 51%.

Walker's numbers are essentially unchanged since October. Tuesday's poll found an approval rating of 50% with 44% disapproving. Six months ago, 49% approved and 45% disapproved.

The latest approval rating for U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan is 45%, the same as in October. But 15% said they haven't heard enough to form an opinion, even though he was the Republican vice presidential candidate.
