UW-La Crosse political scientist Chergosky on being nonpartisan, trusting polls, Biden on ballot



UW-La Crosse political science professor, Dr. Anthony Chergosky, in the WIZM studio for La Crosse Talk PM on Nov. 10, 2023.

Went down multiple rabbit holes Friday on La Crosse Talk PM with UW-La Crosse political science professor, Dr. Anthony Chergosky in regards to Joe Biden being on the 2024 ballot, the Marquette U poll being trusted and staying nonpartisan.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

The first rabbit hole was about Green Party candidate Jill Stein announcing a 2024 presidential run, where she’s been for the past seven years and where a candidate needs to start to run for office. It stems from Eric Wilson, on La Crosse Talk PM the day before, running for US House in the 3rd District with no prior experience. 

After that we talked about the Wisconsin state Legislature’s, what I like to call cram session, where a hundred bills get passed and the public can’t keep up. But we contrasted that with the very public way the $517 million Milwaukee Brewers stadium deal is being handled in the public’s eye.

After that, we discussed how Chergosky has to walk the line of non-partisanship. That conversation began with polls, including the Marquette University Law School poll — how it’s one of the most trusted — and how else we could get the public’s take on issues — like polling the Joe Rogan podcast audience. 

Also, we discussed polling on the 2024 presidential race and — at the end of the show — whether we should be voting for judges. The poll conversation included how Nikki Haley beats Biden by a landslide but can’t beat Donald Trump, and whether it’s productive to believe someone with name recognition will run against Biden in 2024.

    It is a tragedy that Nikki Haley probably will not get the nomination.
    On the other hand, the media will not divulge the polls showing that.
    You want Trump running because in the end Biden will win while Haley he would lose.
    You want the Imperial one back in office to further ruin the economy.
    My 401K has taken a dramatic hit since King Joe has been in office.

    Haley is a war mongering RINO. Vivek had it right. The media keeps trying to promote her but the folks aren’t buying it as the polls indicate.

    The entire election is turning into a PsyOp. Trump indicted over matters no one else would be indicted over, Kennedy had to go independent because the Dems screwed him, Dem Jill Stein announced this week she is running again but no media covered it. No Dem debate is in the offering.

    Today, Biden couldn’t place the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns and walk 10 feet back to his place without getting lost and having to ask for directions. Pitiful…no media coverage.
