Wisconsin voters overwhelmingly say ethics and honesty in government are a major concern in the upcoming election.

That's according to the latest Badger poll, where 96 percent of voters said ethics and honesty were somewhat, or very, important to them.

And 72 percent said improving access to health care is a high priority.

Respondents also say improving public education and holding down taxes are very important in making their election decisions.

The poll is sponsored by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and The Capital Times of Madison.

Reducing spending and the protecting the environment also rate among Wisconsin voters' major issues.

Gov. McCallum says lawmakers are more concerned with power than policy. He says an ethics in government commission he appointed is working on solutions to clean up government.

Democrat Jim Doyle's camp says he's campaigning in Marinette and couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

McCallum and Doyle face each other in the Nov. 5 election.
