MILWAUKEE — Marquette Law School Poll Director Charles Franklin will provide the results of a new poll of Wisconsin voters in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 12:15 p.m. in the Lubar Center at Marquette University Law School’s Eckstein Hall.
With just under four weeks to go until election day, the poll looks at Wisconsin’s races for governor, senator and attorney general. Which voters are enthusiastic and more likely to turn out to vote?
Also in this month’s poll are questions on taxes and spending for roads and schools, as well as voters’ views of health insurance coverage options. Other state issues include opioids, prisons and Foxconn. On the national scene, the poll will look at voters’ views on the Supreme Court nomination hearings and the Mueller investigation.
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 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 programs 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.
