MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Over half of Wisconsin voters still like the job Governor Scott Walker’s doing.
That’s according to the latest Marquette Law School poll released Wednesday afternoon.
52 percent of about 1,000 registered voters approved of the Republican Walker’s performance in office, while 46 percent disapproved.
Also, 49 percent in the Marquette poll said they wanted to keep in place the governor’s near-elimination of collective bargaining for most public employee unions. 44 percent said they wanted to restore all previous union privileges.
The poll asked the question after Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas struck down the bargaining law as it applies to local government and public school unions.
State employees are still under the bargaining limits. But in March, a federal judge struck down parts of the law that prohibited public employers from withholding union dues from paychecks – and requiring that unions hold certification votes every year in order to keep being recognized.
The state is appealing both rulings.
The Marquette poll was taken last Tuesday through Friday with an error margin of almost 3.3 percent either way.
