As public impeachment hearings begin, how do Wisconsin voters view the possible impeachment of President Donald Trump? How closely are voters following the impeachment hearings and how do they evaluate the evidence?

This poll will look ahead to November 2020 and how the general election is shaping up. How do voters rate Trump's handling of his job overall and his handling of the economy and foreign policy? It will also report on support for the Democratic presidential primary candidates and their appeal to voters.

In Wisconsin issues, Franklin will look at evaluations of the governor, legislature, and state and federal elected officials.

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 co-founded, 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.
