Marquette Law School Poll director Franklin goes 'On the Issues' with new poll Oct. 31

October 25, 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, Oct. 31, at 12:15 p.m. in the Lubar Center at Marquette University Law School's Eckstein Hall.

With less than a week until Election Day, Franklin will look at where the races for Wisconsin governor, U.S. senator and attorney general stand. Are some groups of voters set in their choices while others are wavering? And which party holds an enthusiasm advantage as voters head to the polls?

This poll also looks at what voters say are the most important issues facing the state, their tax and spending priorities, and their views of public education, quality of roads and health care policy. On the national scene, we look at public opinion on trade policy, tariffs, immigration and the Trump presidency.

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, 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.
