Chicago, Ill. – A new poll suggests Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich approval rating has rebounded over the past three months.

That's despite a contentious stand-off with lawmakers over the state budget. The Chicago Tribune/WGN-TV poll finds that 51% of those polled say they approve of Blagojevich's job performance. According to the poll, 30% say they disapprove; 19% are undecided or 'other.'

The rating was as low as 40% in May.

The poll was conducted by Market Shares Corporation and has an error margin of 4%.
