MU Law poll shows Evers' approval rating fall along with Wisconsinites' COVID-19 concerns
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Governor Tony Evers’ approval rating is falling, along with Wisconsin residents' concerns over COVID-19.
That’s according to the new Marquette University Law School poll.
“That has dropped a bit noticeably,” said Charles Franklin talking about the governor’s approval rating. It is down to 51% from 57% last month.
That’s also a big drop of the 65% it was when the pandemic hit.
Most of the public thinks Gov. Evers is handling the pandemic well, 57%, but less people are concerned about it.
The poll shows only 21% are very concerned about COVID-19. 39% are somewhat concerned.
When cases spiked last month, concern went up, and so did Gov. Evers’ favorability. When worry went down, so did Evers’ approval.
It’s hard to say for sure whether coronavirus is affecting the governor’s numbers, but so far those numbers have gone up and down together.
