Charles Franklin, professor of law and public policy and director of the Marquette Law School Poll, joins Mike Gousha, distinguished fellow in law and public policy, for a discussion of the new Evers administration, state policy and national politics
Tony Evers became Wisconsin's 46th governor on January 7 with a call to transcend divisiveness. But do Wisconsin voters think the Democratic governor and the Republican-controlled legislature are trying to reach across the partisan divide? Charles Franklin, director of the Marquette Law School Poll, reports the findings of the first Marquette Law School Poll since the November election. Franklin examines the pulse of voters on issues where the Evers administration is at odds with the legislature: tax and spending priorities, health care and school funding. The poll provides an overview of voter opinions on the 2020 presidential race, with a look at President Trump's approval rating, the proposed border wall, the government shutdown, and his appeal as a candidate for a second term, along with a first look at how voters rate the Democratic field in the race for the White House.
