Dan Deibert and I discuss the findings from the latest Marquette University Law School Poll, which were released this afternoon.
This will be the last poll before the primary, which is less than 4 weeks away (August 14).
The latest Marquette University Law School Poll is out, and we’re talking numbers, trends and outliers in this quick video podcast. Talk of a Blue Wave hitting Wisconsin is a bit premature, and while results of this poll are mixed, overall both Scott Walker and Tammy Baldwin have more reasons to like them than fear them. Details, here:

Take a listen. If you are at all invested in this story, or care about civil rights, liberty and keeping your government in check, it is worth your time.
It’s a story that has been close to my heart for decades.
Wisconsin Public Radio’s report on Trump’s ascension as the presumptive Republican nominee for President. So they called Edge Messaging’s president for comment.
Brian Fraley, Scott Walker and Martha Laning answer: Trump as Nominee…Now What?
A shorter version of the story is also available on their website.
The Cap Times asked me for my take on tonight’s debate.
“There’s no question that August was a brutal month for the Walker campaign, but while the polling numbers have changed since the last debate, the facts here in Wisconsin have not,” said Brian Fraley, a former Republican operative who now owns the Brookfield consulting firm Edge Messaging. “Gov. Walker’s track record of walking the walk is his greatest asset and something he needs to get back to. But, let’s be clear, this isn’t a debate. It’s an 11-person televised interview, and one that will center on the novelty candidate-turned front runner.”

In his most extensive on-camera interview ever, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Dan Bice does not hold back. For example, he reveals that his editors squashed a story regarding improper and illegal activity by a prominent Democratic lobbyist. He praises the work of Media Trackers and Wisconsin Watchdog and admits “It’s good for me when Scott Walker wins.” Seriously. The Dailytakes show starts off with this must-watch interview. Worth every second of your time.
