The Marquette Law School Poll was cited in numerous stories nationwide for its latest results, which found little change in voter preferences or attitudes following the first presidential debate and after President Donald Trump tested positive for COVID-19. While twice as many respondents say former Vice President Joe Biden did better in the debate than those who say Trump did better, the shift in the vote margin since early September is a single point.

Dr. Charles Franklin, director of the Marquette Law Poll, discussed polling numbers for former Vice President Joe Biden and the differences in Wisconsin voters now compared to during the 2016 presidential election. Franklin said the number of undecided voters in Wisconsin is about half that of 2016 and there is less room for President Trump to pick up additional support. He added that the latest Law Poll shows an increased determination to vote this year, and that is likely to benefit Biden.
