New Marquette Law School Poll looks at how coronavirus is affecting Wisconsin, as well as state and national response to the pandemic
On-line release set for Wednesday, April 1, 2020 at 12:15p.m.
Marquette Law School Poll Director Charles Franklin will release results of a new statewide poll on Wednesday, April 1, at 12:15 p.m., via posting of a news release and poll data, including toplines and slides, at https://law.marquette.edu/poll/.
Results and commentary will be available on Twitter via the @MULawPoll account beginning at the time of release, and a video discussion between Franklin and Mike Gousha about the top headlines of the poll also will be posted Wednesday.
As Wisconsin and the nation confront the coronavirus epidemic, this new poll examines the public reaction and how Wisconsin voters are being affected. Topics include attention to and concern about the COVID-19 outbreak, the impact of social distancing on people’s lives and jobs, and the extent to which the public believes the social distancing measures are appropriate. We also look to the future, asking about the Democratic National Convention, scheduled for July in Milwaukee; how long it will take for the epidemic to come under control; and the economic outlook for the coming year.
The poll measures approval of the handling of the coronavirus outbreak by President Donald Trump and Gov. Tony Evers. It also includes a final look at the Democratic presidential primary on the April 7 ballot and a look ahead to the November presidential election.
