MILWAUKEE – Charles Franklin, director of the Marquette Law School Poll, will unveil a new round of poll results in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, Sept. 17, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

Franklin and Gousha will present a live look inside the numbers of the sixth Marquette Law School Poll of the 2014 election year, examining public views on the Wisconsin gubernatorial and attorney general campaigns, plus other key issues as the countdown to the November election continues.

After four months of deadlocked polling, how are the candidates’ images shifting? Have ad campaigns, the recent release of documents in the John Doe case or other events moved public opinion? In the race for attorney general, how successfully are the candidates introducing themselves to voters? The poll also will measure public perception of job creation, the state budget and other policy positions.

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 that provides access to a live video stream.

The Marquette Law School Poll is the most extensive, independent statewide polling project in Wisconsin history. The 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 the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community — the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
