Poll: Evers under water, voters want someone else

MADISON — A new poll  finds a majority of voters are ready for Gov. Tony Evers to hit the road, with 60 percent of those surveyed saying Wisconsin is on the wrong track.

The statewide survey from pollster Cygnal, conducted July 6-8, finds voters have a net-unfavorable view of the Democrat’s performance. Cygnal surveyed 640 general election voters in the Badger State, and found 52 percent oppose a second term for Evers. The governor last month announced that he is running for re-election. 

Evers runs just behind a generic GOP challenger (the poll didn’t pit Evers against possible Republican candidates) — with 47.5 percent supporting a Republican contestant, and 46.9 percent saying they would vote for Evers.

The poll finds Evers is vulnerable on some key issues — problems that he has made worse. Seventy-six percent of respondents have heard about or have experienced trouble filling jobs. Evers recently vetoed a Republican bill that would end the federal unemployment bonus payment. At $300 weekly, businesses and economic experts say the subsidy is keeping jobless Wisconsinites from looking for work during a worker shortage crisis.

More than half of voters are less likely to support Evers because of his lack of action on unemployment benefits. The Evers administration’s slow response to last year’s flood of unemployment claims has been roundly criticized.

Voters are split on whether they’d vote for him or “a Republican candidate” if the gubernatorial election was held today, according to the poll.

President Joe Biden is under water in Wisconsin, too. The poll finds the Democrat has a -6 net favorable rating and 50 percent don’t approve of the job he’s doing. Inflation is a key concern. Eighty percent of respondents say they are worried about rapidly rising prices.

  • Looks like voters are starting to understand that an educator (just saying…..of course it’s tongue in cheek calling him an “educator”), that knows nothing about actually running something, was a huge mistake. Only issue I have is all the money he has on hand….of course from WEAC and NEA…(great laundering scheme, give them a boatload of cash and they turn around and give your campaign tons of cash). He’s a real tool, acting like he gave taxpayers a tax cut. He’s got to go !
