MADISON (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker's approval rating is little unchanged from nine months ago as he mounts his re-election bid.

The Marquette University Law School poll released Monday shows his approval rating is 47 percent. That is basically unchanged from 48 percent in June, his highest marks since October 2014.

At this time in 2014, when Walker was last on the ballot for re-election, his approval rating was the same as it is now -- 47 percent.

His disapproval rate is also 47 percent.

Pollster Charles Franklin says, "essentially the state is pretty divided over him."

The poll surveyed 800 registered voters between Feb. 25 and Thursday and had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
