Charles Franklin goes “On the Issues” to present new Marquette Law School Poll
The Marquette Law School Poll is the most extensive statewide polling project in Wisconsin history.
MILWAUKEE – Charles Franklin, director of the Marquette Law School Poll, will present results from a new poll of Wisconsin voters in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Thursday, August 20, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.
The November 2016 election may still be 15 months away, but the campaign season is already here. How do Wisconsin residents feel about the candidates for president? How is Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker faring in his home state? And what do voters think about a possible rematch between U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson and former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold? Franklin and Mike Gousha will go inside the numbers of the poll, which also will examine public attitudes on a range of key policy questions facing the state and nation.
Seating is limited; registration is available online. For those who can’t attend in person, a “watch now” button will be added to the registration page on the day of the event, providing access to a live video stream.
The Marquette Law School Poll is the most extensive statewide polling project in Wisconsin history. The independent poll has provided highly accurate estimates of election outcomes and has gauged public opinion on a variety of major policy issues.
Franklin has directed the poll since its inception in 2012 and joined the Marquette faculty on a full-time basis in August 2013, becoming a professor of law and public policy. 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 television 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, the “On the Issues with Mike Gousha” interviews of 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.
