Racine, WI – A new July Public Policy Polling survey of 1,007 voters in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District shows Racine native, national security expert, and attorney Roger Polack, who served in Afghanistan, within single digits of incumbent Republican Congressman Bryan Steil.
In the congressional race, incumbent Republican Bryan Steil is earning less than 50 percent of the vote. He leads Democratic challenger Roger Polack by 10 percent (49-39), and the margin shrinks to single digits, with Steil only leading Polack by 6 points (47-41), as voters learn that Polack is a Racine native, national security expert, and attorney. The margin of error of 3.1 percent.
A majority of voters either disapprove or are uncertain of Steil’s performance as their representative, with only 44 percent approving of the job he has done.
The Presidential race is also tied in WI-01. Despite Donald Trump winning the district by 10 percent in 2016, Trump and Joe Biden are tied at 47-47, with six percent undecided.
About Roger Polack
Roger Polack grew up in Racine, one of four children in a blue-collar family. After graduating from Horlick High School, he put himself through UW-Madison and ultimately law school at Georgetown University, studying law at night while working on some of the most pressing national security issues our country faces during the day. He served in the Bush and Obama administrations as an intelligence analyst and then senior policy advisor. Polack deployed to Afghanistan multiple times to take on the Taliban, shut down their financing pipeline, and expose corruption in Afghanistan. He also worked to hold China’s feet to the fire on investment and national security issues and to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Since then he’s served as an attorney focusing on public international law and investigations. He’s running for Congress because he wants to continue serving our country and ensure that every family, just like his own, has the opportunity to build a better life for themselves.
