A new public opinion poll shows President Obama losing support in Wisconsin, more than he has nationally.
UW-Madison polling expert Charles Franklin says the report by Survey USA is in line with what other public opinion samplings have been showing lately, but it is worse in Wisconsin for the president.
Obama's favorable rating in the Badger State has dropped from 59-percent in June to an even 50-percent, the lowest since he took office.
Franklin says the administration should be considered by the dropping numbers, especially in states that have been hit by job losses and state budget problems. Wisconsin fits that criteria, and Obama's numbers reflect that.
The poll says that's especially the case among independents.
