Date: Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2014
Time: 12:15 – 1:15 p.m.
Place: Marquette Law School, Eckstein Hall
Charles Franklin, director of the Marquette Law School Poll, will unveil a final round of pre-election poll results in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, Oct. 29, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.
Franklin and Gousha will present a live look inside the numbers of the ninth Marquette Law School Poll of the 2014 election year, examining public views on the candidates, the variety of issues shaping the election and the trends of the year. Have the neck-and-neck races for both governor and attorney general shifted at all, and who is likely to vote at this point? How do voters on the cusp of the election view conditions in the state, and how does that influence their vote preferences?
Seating is limited; registration is available online. For those who can’t attend in person, a “watch now” button will be added to the registration page on the day of the event that provides access to a live video stream.
The Marquette Law School Poll is the most extensive, independent statewide polling project in Wisconsin history. The poll has provided highly accurate estimates of election outcomes and has gauged public opinion on a variety of major policy issues.
Franklin has directed the poll since its inception in 2012 and joined the Marquette faculty on a full-time basis in August 2013, becoming a professor of law and public policy. Franklin co-founded pollster.com, an award-winning site for nonpartisan polling analysis, and is a member of the ABC News election-night analysis team.
Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.
Through the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community — the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
