MADISON-A poll released today by the Republican MacIver Institute and paid for by a right-wing New York firm finds a majority of Wisconsinites disapprove of Scott Walker.

The small sample poll was funded by the so-called "Manhattan Institute for Policy Research," an anti-union outfit that receives funding from corporate interests that have been supportive of Walker.

"Even a faulty poll broadcast by a right-wing outfit and commissioned by Republican corporate front groups can't hide the fact that Wisconsin has rejected Scott Walker and his divisive policies," Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Tuesday.
