Perceptions of which candidate would handle each of seven issues better and candidate characteristics are also included for Biden and Trump. In the race for U.S. Senate, the poll includes vote choice between Sen. Tammy Baldwin and challenger Eric Hovde and favorability ratings for each. Views of national and state issues are included, along with job-approval ratings for Biden and Gov. Tony Evers and favorability ratings of Trump, Sen. Ron Johnson, and others. There will also be special coverage of views of school performance and education policy.

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. He co-founded, an award-winning site for nonpartisan polling analysis. Franklin is a past president of the Society for Political Methodology and an elected fellow of the society; he holds a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Michigan.

Mosley returned to Marquette Law School as the Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education director in 2023. After graduating in 1995, he served as an assistant district attorney for Milwaukee County until 2002, representing the state of Wisconsin in more than 1,000 criminal prosecutions. From 2002 until 2022, Mosley served as a judge of the Milwaukee Municipal Court. At the time of his appointment, he was the youngest African American to become a judge in the state of Wisconsin.
