Chamberlain Research Poll: Wisconsin Trends - Spring 2002

Would you support or oppose the Wisconsin State Legislature passing a law to allow seriously ill or terminally ill patients to use marijuana for medical purposes if supported by their physician?

CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

When the results are examined by congressional district, they once again illustrate the disconnect between Wisconsinites and their elected representatives. In the First District, currently represented by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Janesville), 81.5% answered yes. In the Second District, represented by Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Madison), currently the sole supporter of medicinal marijuana among the Wisconsin congressional delegation, and a cosponsor of the federal medical marijuana bill HR 2592, 87.1% of respondents answered yes.

In the Third District, represented by Rep. Ron Kind (D-La Crosse), 3 of 4 respondents, or 75.0% answered yes. In the Fourth and Fifth Districts, combined by Chamberlain for this survey most likely because pending redistricting will eliminate a Milwaukee-area congressional seat, the number was 81.9%. Like the rest of the Wisconsin delegation outside of Rep. Baldwin, neither of the current representatives Tom Barrett (D-Milwaukee) a candidate for governor, or Gerald Kleczka (D-Milwaukee), has expressed any support for this issue to date.

In Rep. Tom Petri's (R-Fond du Lac) Sixth District, 81.5% answered yes, with the same percentage answering yes in Rep. David Obey's (D-Wausau) Seventh District. In the Eighth District, currently represented by Mark Green (R-Green Bay), the number was 80.8%.

In the Ninth District, long represented by Rep. James Sensenbrenner, who has consistently opposed allowing patients legal access to medical marijuana, 74.2% answered yes, nearly 3 of 4 respondents.

VOTING HABITS

When the results were examined by respondents voting habits, 75.9% of those saying they voted in every election answered yes. Those who said they voted in almost every election supported the issue at 82.9%. Those identifying themselves as voting in major races expressed 83.1%. The small number (28) of respondents who stated they don't usually vote expressed 80% support. With the bulk of the sample reporting that they vote and support medicinal marijuana, this issue will undoubtedly come up in this election year.
