Abstract: This statewide survey was conducted as the eighteen of an ongoing series of surveys which function as the "poll of record" for Wisconsin, examining 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 survey was underwritten by private funds available to the University of Wisconsin Madison with support from the Capital Times (Madison) and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, who served as media co-sponsors. Most of the results are based on a statewide random digit dial telephone survey of 557 state residents interviewed from October 23 to October 27. They were sampled from eligible voters planning to vote in the upcoming election. Telephone numbers were generated by computer in proportion to the number of adults living in each area of the state. Theoretically, results from this survey have a margin of error of about plus or minus four percent. Topics included in this poll are presidential election, senate race, campaign, Iraq, government spending, and free world trade.
