Just over half of Wisconsin voters support limiting collective bargaining for public workers, but a similar number oppose a new state law that does just that, according to a new poll done for a free-market group.
The poll again exposes the deep divisions in the state over Republican Gov. Scott Walker's successful effort this year to curb the power of unions, triggering widespread protests and the largest wave of legislative recall elections in the country's history.
Voters are likewise split on the job Walker is doing, with 49% approving and 50% disapproving. Despite those tight numbers, just 44% favor recalling Walker, while 50% oppose doing so.
