MILWAUKEE (WSAU-Wheeler News) Just over half of Wisconsinites approve of Governor Scott Walker’s job performance. That’s according to a new Marquette Law School poll released yesterday. 51-percent of almost 720 registered voters approved of the governor’s work, while 45-percent disapproved.
The poll was taken last Tuesday through Friday. It has an error margin of 4.4-percent either way. Walker continues to make job creation his top priority, but 49-percent in the new poll say Wisconsin is lagging behind other states in creating jobs. Only 9-percent said the Badger State is creating jobs faster than others, while 35-percent said the state is about on pace with others.
Pollster Charles Franklin says there’s a partisan split on the issue. Only 26-percent of Republicans thought Wisconsin was lagging behind others in creating jobs, while 47-percent of independents and 70-percent of Democrats felt that way.
