July 11, 2018

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, July 18, at 12:15 p.m. in the Lubar Center at Marquette University Law School's Eckstein Hall.

With less than a month until primary election day, have Wisconsin voters begun to make up their minds? In the crowded race for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, who is gaining traction with voters, and is anyone breaking out of the pack? If voters cast their ballots in the Republican U.S. Senate primary today, how close would it be? The survey also will provide Wisconsin voters' first reaction to President Donald Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, and public views on the impact of tariffs, immigration policy and the state of roads in Wisconsin.

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, 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 at (414) 288-4745 or
