Marquette University Law School is pleased to bring you the results of a new statewide survey on Wednesday, August 17, in an in-person event featuring poll director Prof. Charles Franklin.

The program will begin at 12:15 p.m. CDT in the Lubar Center in Eckstein Hall. This program is free and open to the public. Please register here to attend in person. A light lunch will be available. The program will also be live-streamed on the Law School’s website via the "Watch Now" button for those unable to join us in person. Results will be synchronously noted on Twitter via the @MULawPoll account.

The Marquette Law School Poll’s August survey of Wisconsin looks at post-primary preferences in the races for governor and the U.S. Senate. The poll includes the public’s views of candidates and incumbent office holders, including approval ratings for President Joe Biden and Gov. Tony Evers, along with the favorability ratings for Sen. Ron Johnson, Sen. Tammy Baldwin, former President Donald Trump, and former Gov. Scott Walker.

This latest poll surveys public opinion about a wide variety of topics, including schools, the January 6 hearings, abortion policy, confidence in the 2020 election, legalization of marijuana, paid family leave, inflation, taxes, gun violence, the coronavirus pandemic, illegal immigration, crime, and climate change.

A complete news release and poll data will be available on the Marquette Law School Poll website, shortly after 1:15 p.m., following the event.

On The Issues: Russ Feingold and Co-Author Debut New Book on the Basic Charter of American Government

Tuesday, August 30, 2022 - 12:15pm Lubar Center

Authors Russ Feingold and Peter Prindiville—in a conversation with Marquette Law School’s Mike Gousha—will visit Eckstein Hall for the national debut of their new book, The Constitution in Jeopardy: An Unprecedented Effort to Rewrite Our Fundamental Law and What We Can Do About It. The program will take place on Tuesday, August 30, at 12:15 p.m. the Lubar Center. Lunch will be provided, but registration is required. Please register HERE (space is limited). The first 50 Marquette law students to register will receive a free copy of the book. The authors will be signing copies after the program.

The book examines the history and meaning of the U.S. Constitution’s amendment procedure and what the authors regard as fringe efforts to call the first-ever constitutional convention under its provisions and as the need for reform that provides for more frequent, democratic constitutional change. The Constitution in Jeopardy is intended to offer both a warning and a way forward and is written for a broad audience of engaged citizens.

About the participants:

  • Russ Feingold is president of the American Constitution Society and a former three-term U.S. senator from Wisconsin; he has served as a visiting professor of law at Marquette University, Stanford University, and Yale University.
  • Peter Prindiville, a native of Woodstock, Ill., is a nonresident fellow at the Stanford Constitutional Law Center and an attorney based in Washington, D.C.
  • Mike Gousha is Marquette Law School’s senior advisor in law and public policy.
