MILWAUKEE – Who’s up, who’s down and what do the voters think? Hear from Professor Charles Franklin, the director of the Marquette Law School Poll, on the largest independent polling project in Wisconsin history.

Franklin will be the featured guest of the Milwaukee Press Club’s Newsmaker Luncheon on Wednesday, March 28, from 11:45 to 1:30 p.m. at the Newsroom Pub in downtown Milwaukee at 137E. Wells Street.

The eyes of the nation are on Wisconsin during the 2012 election year. Running throughout the year, the Marquette University Law School Poll provides a comprehensive, independent survey of voter attitudes in Wisconsin. Monthly polls measure voter attitudes toward the 2012 presidential and U.S. Senate elections; citizen reaction to current state policy debates and possible recall elections; and a wide range of opinions among Wisconsin voters.

The polling initiative is led by Charles Franklin, visiting professor of law and public policy at Marquette Law School and a nationally recognized expert in polling and voter analyses.

Franklin will be interviewed by a panel of professional journalists.

The Milwaukee Press Club’s Newsmaker Luncheon Series is sponsored by Journal Communications and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
