NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A recent poll shows Republican Gov. Bill Haslam has strong bipartisan support among Tennessee voters.
The Middle Tennessee State University poll shows Haslam has a 76 percent approval rating among independents heading into the third year of his term, 75 percent of Republicans like what he's doing, and 54 percent of Democrats approve.
More than two in three voters, or 68 percent, say they approve of the way Haslam is handling his job as governor. Fourteen percent disapprove, and 16 percent say they don't know.
The poll conducted last month surveyed 650 registered voters. It has an error margin of plus or minus four percentage points.
