MILWAUKEE (AP) _ Just under half of registered Wisconsin voters approve of the job Gov. Scott Walker is doing.

The Marquette law school released its latest poll numbers Wednesday. The poll says 49 percent of voters approve of how the Republican governor is handling is job. Another 46 percent disapprove, and 4 percent aren't sure.

Those figures are about in line with Walker's recent numbers. His approval rating was 47 percent in late March.

The poll also asks how voters see Walker as a person. It says 47 percent see him favorably and 48 unfavorably, about the same as in March.

The poll interviewed 805 registered voters between May 15 and Sunday. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points
