Wisconsin Economic Scorecard

New Poll: Wisconsinites Lukewarm on Current Economy, But Optimistic
It’s a week-and-a-half since the election, and the nation’s attention has turned to our economic fortunes. A standoff continues over the so-called “fiscal cliff,” though there is likewise increasing talk of a so-called “grand bargain” to head it off.
In Wisconsin, many are looking both to today’s formal announcement by the governor over health insurance exchanges, but also further ahead to the next proposed biennial budget.
The UWM Center for Urban Initiatives and Research has just released the results of its latest Wisconsin Economic Scorecard survey, which looks at how Wisconsinites view the state’s economic health and its direction. Joseph Cera manages the survey center, and he joins us now with the results.
The poll was conducted November 7-9, included 426 Wisconsin residents and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.75 percent.
