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,” Wednesday, March 22, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

Two months into Donald Trump’s presidency, how are Wisconsin voters’ opinions of the new president developing? Have their opinions changed from the fall? How are voters reacting to proposed changes in the Affordable Care Act? And as we enter the spring budget cycle at the state capitol, how do voters think we should address budget issues? Franklin and Gousha will provide the details of our first poll of 2017.

The event is open to the public at no cost. Registration is required and is available online.

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 cofounded 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.
