Vote by Group by Sex in Wisconsin, Aug 2019-Sept. 2020
Comparison of Biden or Trump vote by groups by sex. Women vary hugely across groups, but women are more pro-Biden than men in virtually every group.
Enthusiasm in Wisconsin 2020
A review of MULawPoll surveys in 2020 find no consistent partisan advantage in enthusiasm to vote in November. There are no differences in enthusiasm by vote choice. Those who strongly approve of the job Trump has done are a little more enthusiastic, while Democrats are a little more enthusiastic than Republicans. I see no consistent advantage for either side as of early August polling.
Public Opinion and Black Lives Matter Protests in Wisconsin
This report details public opinion following the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Using Marquette Law School Poll data from June and August I examine opinion of protests, the Black Lives Matter movement, the police and police conduct. The August poll was conducted before the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha Wi. The data will be updated after Labor Day.
Biden Republicans and Trump Democrats in Wisconsin

When the epidemic will be under control
Beliefs about when the coronavirus epidemic will be under control and things can return to normal have changed dramatically from March to June, with a far longer campaign against the virus now expected by most. There are sharp partisan differences, and differences by approval of Donald Trump's handling of his job as presidency. But all groups, different as they may be, have shifted in the direction of seeing a long struggle to return to normal.
