A survey of Wisconsin public opinion
By Gordon Black
The Wisconsin Policy Research Institute, (WPRI) commissioned a state-wide survey of 1000 randomly selected Wisconsin residents, which was conducted in early January 1988. The survey, conducted by the Gordon S. Black Corporation, was designed as the first of a series of studies of the views of Wisconsin residents. For this reason, the results of the first poll will serve as a baseline for measuring changes that occur in public attitudes. In addition, the first poll raised issues that cannot be resolved within the data obtained, and subsequent studies will explore some of these issues in more detail.
