Madison (AP) – A new poll shows Wisconsin residents support key portions of Gov. Tony Evers’ agenda, including raising the minimum wage, spending more on special education and legalizing medical marijuana.

The Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday also shows there is not majority support for Evers’ proposals to increase the gas tax to pay for roads and freeze enrollment in voucher schools.

The mixed results are consistent with the last poll taken just as the Democrat Evers began his term as governor in January.

His approval rating is at 47 percent, with 37 percent disapproving of the job he’s doing four months into his term.

The Republican-controlled Legislature was doing better. Its approval rating was 50 percent with 38 percent opposed.

The poll of 800 registered voters was taken between April 3 and Sunday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
