MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker's approval rating remains below 40 percent.

A Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday shows Walker's approval at 38 percent, nearly unchanged from 39 percent in June. It was at 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.

Walker has largely remained out of the national spotlight since then, but he is scheduled to speak next week at the Republican national convention.

The Marquette Law School Poll was conducted Thursday through Sunday, sampling 801 registered Wisconsin voters. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 points.
