Charles Franklin from the Marquette University Law School Poll took a deep dive into some of the latest numbers at the Cap Times Idea Fest.

For a sense of where the Wisconsin public stands on issues of the day, not much parallels the Marquette University Law School poll. Journalists, political operatives and data nerds alike consider it a gold standard of in-state polling, and pay close attention to its findings whenever a new one comes out, particularly during election season. 

The poll's director, Charles Franklin, spoke to a packed room at Idea Fest with WKOW Capitol Bureau Chief Emilee Fannon at length about the takeaways from the latest poll, conducted in mid-September. On the latest episode of Live from Cap Times Idea Fest, we bring you a recording of his talk.

It's a deep dive into the numbers, which Franklin illustrated at the talk with a series of slides that you can follow along with here.
