MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker's approval rating has dropped in a new Marquette University Law School poll.
 
The poll released Wednesday shows Walker's approval at 39 percent, down from 43 percent in March just before Wisconsin's presidential primary.
Walker's approval rating first fell below 40 percent nearly a year ago, just before he dropped out of the Republican race for president.

His numbers are better than either remaining presidential candidate.

The poll shows 58 percent have an unfavorable view of Democrat Hillary Clinton and 64 percent unfavorable for Trump. Only 37 percent have a favorable view of Clinton, while it's just 26 percent for Trump.
 
The Marquette Law School Poll was conducted Thursday through Sunday, sampling 800 registered Wisconsin voters. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 points.
