On November 20, Marquette University Law School released its newest poll numbers forecasting the 2020 elections and gauging the state’s attitudes on a variety of issues and public figures.


The most significant numbers provide a glimpse into Wisconsin voters’ opinions on the impeachment proceedings. The new poll numbers found 40 percent of respondents favor impeachment of President Donald Trump while 53 percent do not. However, 52 percent of respondents said they do believe Trump asked Ukraine to investigate Trump’s political rivals.


Additionally, the poll indicates 42 percent of respondents say Trump did “something seriously wrong” while 38 percent say he “did nothing wrong.”


While the numbers indicate a majority of respondents believe Trump asked Ukraine to investigate political rivals and a plurality believe he did “something seriously wrong”, a majority of respondents still do not support impeachment.


In other presidential data, Trump now leads the top four potential Democratic contenders in the 2020 election. Previously polls showed him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. However, Trump now leads Biden by 3 points, Sanders by 3 points, and Warren by 5 points.


According to the poll, 28 percent of respondents indicated they usually think of themselves as Republicans, 28 percent said they think of themselves as Democrats, and 38 percent said they consider themselves Independent. Given the breakdown, this week’s poll numbers could indicate Trump seems to be polling better amongst self-described independents.


While Trump’s numbers are rising, Biden still remains the first choice for many Democratic Primary voters in Wisconsin. He leads Sanders by 13 points and Warren by 15 in the race for the Democratic nomination.


The new poll numbers also indicate Governor Tony Evers’ approval rating has dipped below 50 percent for the first time. The November data shows 47 percent of poll respondents approve of Evers’ job performance.


Other data includes:


The economy, over the last year, has:

  • Improved: 42 percent
  • Worsened: 18 percent
  • Stayed the Same: 37 percent

In 2020, the economy will:

  • Improve: 35 percent
  • Worsen: 24 percent
  • Stay the same: 37 percent

Chronic wasting diseases is a threat to the future of deer hunting:

  • Deer Hunters Responding: Agree – 65%, Disagree – 31%
  • Non-Deer Hunters Responding: Agree – 62%, Disagree – 18%

The poll, conducted among 801 registered Wisconsin voters, has a margin of error of +/- 4.1 percentage points.
