Poll shows majority support Walker recall


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A new poll shows that support for recalling Gov. Scott Walker from office is growing.

The poll released Tuesday comes the same day as the launch of the petition drive to collect the 540,000 signatures necessary to recall Walker.

The Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert College Survey shows that 58 percent of respondents believe Walker should be recalled from office. That compares with 47 percent who said in April that Walker should be recalled.

Walker's approval ratings are also low, with 58 percent saying they disapprove of the job he's doing. That's down from 48 percent in the spring.

The survey of 482 Wisconsin residents was done between Nov. 1 and Thursday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
