PLATO members are invited to attend this this lively social event which will feature keynote speaker Charles Franklin, Director of the Marquette Law School Poll. The title of his presentation is The Outlook for the 2024 Elections in Wisconsin and the Nation. With the presidential and congressional elections looming in a few short months, what are the state and national forces that are shaping the elections? How are the economy, immigration, presidential approval, and other issues likely to push the elections in the favor of one party or the other? At the state level, how is the US Senate race seen by the public? The Marquette Law School polls of Wisconsin and national voters help understand were we are, how we got here, and what to watch in the run-up to the November elections.
