Eighty-eight members rated Butler as highly qualified, while 44 said he was qualified. Twenty-eight said he was not qualified, while 23 had no opinion.

Twenty respondents rated Gableman highly qualified, while 48 found him qualified. Fifty-four rated his as not qualified, while 55 had no opinion.

In the 2nd District Court of Appeals race, 111 rated William Gleisner as highly qualified or qualified, while 91 found Lisa Neubauer highly qualified or qualified.

Last week, the Milwaukee Bar Association's poll showed eighty-two percent of the MBA's members who rated Justice Louis Butler found him "qualified" for the state Supreme Court, while 23 percent of those rating Gableman felt the same about him.

Ten percent of those rating Butler found him unqualified for the court, while 39 percent of those rating Gableman found him unqualified. Butler is a former Milwaukee judge.

The MBA sent out ballots to its 5,240 members, and 643 were returned by Monday's deadline. Butler was rated by 526 of those who returned ballots, while Gableman was rated by 512.

Members were asked to rate each judicial candidate appearing on the ballot in Milwaukee County as qualified, unqualified or "no opinion." Criteria included integrity, communication and management skills, and knowledge and understanding of the law.
