Another 42 percent disapprove, and 6 percent say they're not sure. Those numbers are generally in line with Walker's recent ratings. His average approval rating has been 49.9 percent, and his disapproval rating has averaged a little over 44 percent. Approval ratings refer to how well people think Walker's doing his job.

The poll interviewed 802 registered votes between Jan. 20 and Thursday. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
