Marquette University News Release

Charles Franklin goes ‘On the Issues’ to present new Marquette Law School Poll

February 22, 2018

MILWAUKEE — Charles Franklin, director of the Marquette Law School Poll, will present results from a new poll of Wisconsin voters in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Monday, March 5, at 12:15 p.m. in the Lubar Center at Marquette University Law School’s Eckstein Hall.

Franklin and Mike Gousha, distinguished fellow in law and public policy, will provide the details of the first Marquette Law School Poll of 2018. How do voters feel about the candidates for governor and senator in the 2018 elections?  What do they think of the direction of the state? How do they view state support for Foxconn and other policy issues? Now that he has been in office for over a year, have opinions of Donald Trump changed? How are voters reacting to debates over immigration and gun policy? And who is enthusiastic about the 2018 elections and who is not?

The Marquette Law School Poll is the most extensive statewide polling project in Wisconsin history. Franklin has directed the poll since its inception in 2012 and is a professor of law and public policy at Marquette Law School. Franklin cofounded 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 broadcast 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 public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, Gousha’s “On the Issues” conversations with newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars and conferences on significant issues of public importance, the Law School serves as the region’s leading venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.

The event is open to members of the general public at no cost; registration is required and is available online. Members of the media who are interested in attending should contact Chris Jenkins in the Office of Marketing and Communication.
