Gov. Scott Walker has enjoyed decent job performance ratings since the Marquette Law School poll began in 2012. But, it was all bad news for him in the latest poll.

His approval ratings, in the first survey of 2015, have plummeted. The latest numbers also indicate strong opposition to key provisions of the governor’s budget.

Director of the Marquette Law School Poll Charles Franklin calls the drop in Gov. Walker’s approval rating breathtaking.

The latest Marquette University Law School Poll showed the races for governor and attorney general in this state were dead even.  It was the latest in a series of polls showing very close races.

Less than three weeks before Election Day, Gov. Walker and Dem. Mary Burke are tied among likely voters, so are the candidates for attorney general.

The poll shows the candidates for Wisconsin governor tied at 46% among registered voters, with Walker leading 49%-46% among people likely to vote.

The race between Gov. Scott Walker and Mary Burke remains neck and neck.

Marquette Law School's latest survey finds Gov. Walker and Democrat Mary Burke tied at 46 percent, among registered voters.

Of the registered voters who responded, 47 percent support Walker while 41 percent prefer Burke.

If the race for Wisconsin governor happened now instead of next fall, it could be a toss-up.

Poll gives Gov. Walker a 47-45 percent edge over Democrat Mary Burke, a 47-44 percent edge over Dem. Sen. Kathleen Vinehout, about a year before the 2014 vote.
