A recent poll conducted by School Choice Wisconsin Action demonstrates strong support for school choice among likely voters throughout Wisconsin.

Presidential candidates are indeed in a dead heat, but school choice draws bipartisan support from Republicans, Independents, and Democrats.

More than two-thirds of likely voters support school choice for all families. That includes 69 percent of Independents, 47 percent of Democrats, and 87 percent of Republicans. Voters in all media markets favor this idea, including 61 percent of voters in the Madison media market.

The new poll also shows voters prefer candidates who favor school choice. By more than two to one, voters are less likely to support a candidate who opposes giving all parents choice. A plurality of Democrat voters hold that view, as do sizable majorities of Independents and Republicans. These results apply to all media markets.

The poll was conducted by OnMessage Inc., a nationally respected firm with more than 30 years of experience polling on educational matters in Wisconsin. President of polling Wes Anderson was named 2019 American Association of Political Consultants “Pollster of the Year” for his stellar work during the 2018 cycle.
