  • Could Wisconsin see more split-ticket voting in 2022?

    Recent polling from Marquette University suggests the possibility of split-ticket voters leading to a Republican win in the U.S. Senate race and a Democratic win in the race for governor. A political scientist joins the show to talk about what we know about split-ticket voters, and why we’ve seen less split tickets in recent decades.
