Abstract: This statewide survey was conducted by the University of Wisconsin Survey Center(UWSC). Badger Poll is intended to be an ongoing series of surveys which function as the "poll of record" for Wisconsin. These surveys examine a wide variety of topics of concern to state residents, including politics but going beyond that to questions of how state residents view their lives, work, and families. This inaugural poll was sponsored by Wisconsin Public Broadcasting and the Capital Times newspaper of Madison. Some 598 randomly chosen state residents were interviewed by telephone between March 5 and March 17. It has a margin of error of about plus or minus four percent. Topics included in this poll are Governor Mccallum's performance, state budget situation, President Bush's performance, residents' views of Wisconsin, its government, and its tax structure, patriotism, the U.S. space program and the economy.
