UWM survey: Voters support raising Wisconsin minimum wage.  (Milwaukee Business Journal, 6/12/2014)

A solid majority are in support. According to a poll of registered voters out Thursday, 76 percent support raising the minimum while 23 percent oppose going above the current rate of $7.25 per hour. Those results track closely with what previous polls have shown, according to UWM. 

The question remains, how much?
