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 30, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

Election questions abound. How are Wisconsin voters leaning in the wake of Florida, Ohio, and other primaries and caucuses? Will Donald Trump take Wisconsin, or will Ted Cruz or John Kasich pick up support now that the field is smaller? Is the Hillary ClintonBernie Sanders matchup still close? How have voters’ opinions of the candidates in the April 5 Wisconsin Supreme Court election shifted? What issues are motivating voters as the election approaches? This final pre-primary poll will offer a look ahead to the April 5 Wisconsin presidential primaries and Wisconsin Supreme Court election. Franklin and Mike Gousha will go inside the numbers of the poll.

Seating is available, although registration is required and 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 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.
