MADISON, Wis. (AP) – President Barack Obama’s approval rating is almost unchanged in Wisconsin, with 46 percent of registered voters saying they approve of the job he’s doing.

A Marquette University law school poll released Wednesday says 47 percent disapprove of his performance, and 4 percent don’t know.

A similar Marquette poll two months ago found that 48 percent approved of the president and 45 percent disapproved

The poll of 804 registered voters was conducted from July 17 through Sunday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
