Most Wisconsin voters approve of the job that embattled Gov. Scott Walker is doing and oppose the effort to recall the freshman Republican from office before the next election, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll.

The telephone survey found that 52 percent of likely Wisconsin voters at least somewhat approve of Walker’s job performance to date, while 46 percent at least somewhat disapprove.

These findings include 40 percent who strongly approve of how the Republican governor is doing and just as many (40 percent) who strongly disapprove.

The survey of 500 likely voters in Wisconsin was conducted on Feb. 27.

Opponents targeted Walker for recall because they were angry about a bill he signed into law a year ago limiting collective-bargaining rights for public sector unions. The measure sparked massive protests and recall efforts against several Republican and Democratic senators last summer.

The opponents — mostly Democrats and union members recently filed petitions with more than a million signatures calling for the recall election.

A recent Marquette University poll showed that Walker leads four potential Democratic challengers in the event of a recall.
