The Marquette University Law School Poll is the state’s gold standard of measuring where voters stand, so here at The Recombobulation Area, we take a close look at each new poll.
There’s less than a month to go until Election Day, and this is the second-to-last Marquette poll before the midterms. It was a good poll for Republicans. Sen. Ron Johnson expanded his lead over Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes and Tim Michels closed the gap behind Gov. Tony Evers.
But as always, there’s much more to learn from this poll than just those head-to-head numbers.
So, let’s recombobulate.
