State voters less optimistic about economy

October 24, 2019

Since 2012, Marquette University Law School polls reported economic optimism among Wisconsin voters. And then 2019 happened.

A new poll, conducted this month, indicates the opposite mindset. The survey found 25% of voters expect the economy to get better versus 30% who expect it to get worse. The average of voters’ optimism this year has been a net negative of 3.5%, compared to a net positive average of 14.7% in 2018.

The poll also found respondents with lower incomes were much more likely to have a negative economic outlook than those who made $75,000 or more.
