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% approval rating among independents heading into the third year of his term, 75% of Republicans like what he's doing, and 54% of Democrats approve.

More than two in three voters, or 68%, say they approve of the way Haslam is handling his job as governor. Fourteen percent disapprove, and 16% 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.
