Heartland Signal: 'Polls tighten in sharply divided Wisconsin: Breaking down races for governor and senator in this crucial swing state'

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.
In this 50-50 “toss-up” state, races for governor and senator are extremely close. We break down those races, take a closer look at the gender gap in the state, the continued overwhelming poll results on abortion rights and how Wisconsin voters view Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

You’ll be able to read two columns on Wisconsin politics every month on Heartland Signal’s brand new opinion section, and listen to Dan Shafer join Patti Vasquez on “Driving it Home” every Wednesday during the 5 p.m. hour.
