Now in May, how are Wisconsin citizens dealing with the personal and economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic? How much have their lives been disrupted? What’s been the impact on childcare and children’s education? Looking ahead, the poll also asks when people think we might get back to normal and how comfortable they would be eating out, shopping, or going to religious services or sporting events. The poll asks about reaction to demonstrations calling for reopening the state and whether opening too fast or not fast enough is the greater risk. Respondents are asked to evaluate how public officials, including the governor, president, and legislature, have handled the response to the epidemic. And with the April presidential primary behind us, we ask about vote-by-mail options for the November election and take a look at the presidential horse race.
