MILWAUKEE (AP) - A new poll finds 59 percent of Wisconsin residents disapprove of Gov. Scott Walker's performance.
The University of Wisconsin Survey Center's Badger Poll released Wednesday shows 55 percent are dissatisfied with the way things are going in Wisconsin.
The center notes the likely reason for Walker's disapproval rate is 55 percent said they opposed his two-year budget plan, which makes deep cuts to public education to deal with a $3 billion budget shortfall.
Walker says he's unconcerned with the findings. He says most are unhappy with the state's direction because of anger over the Senate recall elections and the national economy.
The random telephone poll of 556 people conducted between June 17 and July 10 has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.
