MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker's approval rating is at 43 percent, one year after he dropped his ill-fated run for president.

A Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday shows Walker's approval is unchanged from three weeks ago. It was 38 percent six weeks ago.

By comparison, President Barack Obama's approval rating in Wisconsin was 54 percent and Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan's was 47 percent.

Walker's approval rating has been around 40 percent for more than a year. It dropped to its lowest levels as Walker launched his failed presidential bid and it has not recovered.

The latest Marquette Law School Poll was conducted Sept. 15 through Sunday, sampling 802 registered Wisconsin voters. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 points.
