Exit polls: Nonwhite voters making up largest share of WI voters since 1994

Wisconsin (ABC News) – Polls close within the hour and exit polling in Wisconsin is showing some interesting statistics.

The following stats are from ABC News

While just 16 percent of the electorate, nonwhite voters are making up their largest share of voters in available exit polls for Wisconsin gubernatorial races since 1994.

47 percent of voters prefer to keep incumbent Scott Walker’s (R) signature 2011 law eliminating most collective bargaining for public employees; 41 percent would like to see it repealed. (17 percent are from union households, a new low.

Tony Evers (D) is more personally popular than Walker, who’s seeking his third term. Evers has a 53-41 percent favorability rating, compared with 48-51 percent for Walker – 10 points higher on unfavorability.

Turnout divides 35-33 percent, Democrats-Republicans, in these preliminary results. That 2-point gap is similar to the last two gubernatorial elections.

In a state that narrowly went for Trump in 2016, he has a 46-53 percent job approval rating.
