Charles Franklin goes “On the Issues” to present first Marquette Law School Poll of 2015
Franklin has directed the poll since its inception in 2012 and joined the Marquette faculty on a full-time basis in August 2013.
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, April 16, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.
Franklin and Gousha will take a look inside the numbers of the first Marquette Law School Poll of 2015, examining public views of the state budget, the direction of the state and the 2016 presidential nomination contests. How have voters’ views of conditions in the state shifted since the 2014 election? Has Gov. Scott Walker’s possible presidential run affected his standing with voters in the state, and how much support does he have from home-state voters? What do voters think of a number of proposals in the state budget as legislators move ahead with crafting the final budget? What are the early impressions of the 2016 race for U.S. Senate?
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.
