On Wednesday, the perennial presenters Mike Gousha and Charles Franklin were back at it again with the first Marquette Law School Poll since April. As always there's a range of questions posed to Wisconsin residents, from gun control to water safety.

A lot of things have shifted since the last Marquette Law School Poll back in January.

According to the latest Marquette Law School poll, the biggest concern on people's minds is health care. Forty-eight percent of registered voters said Wisconsin should withdraw from the federal lawsuit seeking to overturn the Affordable Care Act, while forty-two percent support the lawsuit. The response was along party lines with Democrats saying yes — withdraw from the lawsuit, and Republicans saying no — stay the course, and sue the government. 

If the numbers from the latest Marquette University Law School Poll are right, Republican Gov. Scott Walker and his Democratic challenger Tony Evers are tied. Each has 47 percent of the vote amongst the 1,154 likely voters polled by phone Oct. 24-28. 

“It’s not just 47 percent-47 percent, it’s exactly the same number of respondents picking Evers as Walker. Do I need to say that’s inside the margin of error? It obviously is,” says Charles Franklin, the poll director.

The race for governor is in a dead heat, according to the latest Marquette Law School poll, out Wednesday. Incumbent Scott Walker narrowly leads Democratic challenger Tony Evers, 47 percent to 46 percent among likely voters — with less than a month to go until the election. The survey indicates independents played a role in the tight race.

The new Marquette Law School Poll shows Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tony Evers has pulled ahead of Republican incumbent Scott Walker. At the same time, Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin has a sizable lead over her challenger, Republican state Sen. Leah Vukmir, according to the survey.

The new Marquette Law School poll shows tight races for Wisconsin governor and U.S. Senate. The results reflect a survey conducted after the Aug. 14 partisan primary election.

The poll shows Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tony Evers and Republican Gov. Scott Walker tied at 46 percent among likely voters. In the new poll, Evers is two points behind Walker when it comes to registered voters.

A new poll reveals that Wisconsin voters are still undecided before the Aug. 14 partisan primaries. Thirty percent of Republican primary voters and 38 percent of Democratic primary voters are still unsure who to vote for, according to the new Marquette Law School Poll.

The August primaries are less than two months away, and a recent Marquette Law School Poll reveals that Gov. Walker’s approval rating is still below 50 percent. It is the first time, however, in four years, that his approval rating has been higher than his disapproval ratings.

The poll also breaks down how the ten Democratic candidates for governor are faring with Wisconsin voters and how they match up with Walker.

The latest Marquette Law School poll shows Gov. Walker hasn’t been able to move the needle on his approval ratings this election year. That’s despite his efforts to land the massive Foxconn factory in southeastern Wisconsin. The poll also gives us a glimpse at how Democrats are faring in their effort to unseat Walker.

In Wisconsin, the Marquette Law School Poll had Hillary Clinton winning by six points. She lost by one.

Poll Director Charles Franklin says it will take months of study to gather any clear idea about why polls nationwide were so wrong about who was going to win, but he says exit polling provides some clues. It revealed many voters hadn’t yet decided who they wanted for president when Marquette took its last poll of the 2016 election season.

Democrat Hillary Clinton's lead over Republican Donald Trump declined in Wisconsin from seven to six points during the past two weeks and now stands at 46%-40% among likely voters, according to the final Marquette Law School poll before the Nov. 8 Election. 

The margin of error is +/- 3.3 percentage points.

The latest Marquette Law School Poll was released on Wednesday. It says Democrat Hillary Clinton has the support of 44 percent of likely voters. Republican Donald Trump, meanwhile, has the backing of 37 percent of likely voters.

Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate, had the backing of nine percent of likely voters, while Jill Stein of the Green Party captured three percent. Six percent of voters surveyed remain uncommitted.

Democrat Hillary Clinton maintains a small lead over Republican Donald Trump, among likely voters in Wisconsin, according to the latest Marquette Law School Poll. Regarding the U.S. Senate race, the poll shows Democrat Russ Feingold leading Republican incumbent Ron Johnson by six percentage points, among likely voters. Marquette gathers its information by using a combination of landline and cell phone numbers, but other pollsters are experimenting with internet polls.

Hillary Clinton now leads Donald Trump by a 10-point margin among registered voters in Wisconsin and by 15 points among likely voters, according to the latest Marquette Law School Poll released Wednesday.

A month ago, Clinton held  a 6-point lead among registered voters here and a 4-point advantage among likely voters.
