Jan. 8, 2020
New poll looks at views on Iran and foreign policy, the Democratic presidential primary, and the 2020 general election.
MILWAUKEE — Marquette Law School Poll Director Charles Franklin will discuss the results of a new statewide poll in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, Jan. 15, at 12:15 p.m. in the Lubar Center at Marquette University Law School’s Eckstein Hall.

This poll will measure how Wisconsin voters view the U.S. attack that killed Iranian General Qassem Suleimani on Jan. 3, and how they expect Iran will react. Has approval of President Donald Trump’s handling of foreign policy changed since December?
With less than a month to go before the Iowa caucus kicks off voting in the 2020 Democratic nominating process, how are Wisconsin Democratic presidential primary voters lining up in support of the candidates? The poll will also look ahead to November 2020 and how the general election contest is shaping up between Trump and several possible Democratic nominees.
This is the first Marquette Law School poll since the House of Representatives voted in favor of two articles of impeachment of the president. How have voters reacted to that action and what do they think the Senate should do next?
In Wisconsin issues, the poll will look at schools, property taxes, and Foxconn, as well as evaluations of Gov. Tony Evers and Sens. Ron Johnson and Tammy Baldwin.
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 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.
