MU Poll: Gov. Walker's approval rating rises from July

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker's approval rating is a tad higher than in July.  

That's according to the latest Marquette Law School poll Tuesday afternoon.  

49 percent of the 800 voters surveyed last week gave the Republican Walker a favorable rating. 47 percent disapproved of him. 

In the last poll in July, 48 percent approved of the governor's job performance, and 46 percent disapproved.  The new poll's margin of error is 3.5 percent either way. 

The Marquette poll showed Walker leading Democrat Mary Burke 47-45 percent, and Democrat Kathleen Vinehout 47-44.  Burke's campaign said the poll shows that Wisconsin voters are open to new leadership. 

In the Marquette poll, Burke led Walker 49-42 among women, while men gave the governor a 52-40 edge. The gender gap is somewhat smaller for Vinehout. 

Poll director Charles Franklin said the gap is in part due to more women identifying themselves as Democrats -- rather than a response to any specific candidates.
