On this day in 1846, First State Constitutional Convention Meets:
On this date Wisconsin’s first state Constitutional Convention met in Madison. The Convention sat until December 16,1846. The Convention was attended by 103 Democrats and 18 Whigs. The proposed constitution failed when voters refused to accept several controversial issues: an anti-banking article, a homestead exemption (which gave $1000 exemption to any debtor), providing women with property rights, and black suffrage.
The following convention, the Second Constitutional Convention of Wisconsin in 1847-48, produced and passed a constitution that Wisconsin still very much follows today.

(The next Marquette Law School Poll will be out on 10.12.22. In FiveThirtyEight’s assessment, the Marquette Law School Poll isn’t the most accurate pollster this election cycle. The Marquette Poll comes in as a solid A/B poll, but Public Policy Polling, Beacon Research, and Trafalgar rank higher. The Marquette Poll is, however, the most famous poll within the state, having successfully marketed itself as a gold standard.)
