MILWAUKEE (WEAU) -- The final Marquette Law School Poll before the election is out, and it shows Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by six percentage points in Wisconsin.

The poll shows Clinton with 46 percent support from Wisconsin likely voters to Trump's 40 percent, with a margin of error of 3.5 percent.

That's virtually unchanged from three weeks ago, despite the latest news of an FBI investigation of Clinton's emails. Poll Director Charles Franklin says there was a little movement in the polls over the weekend, but not as large as seen in the past.

“I think the bigger question is with about six percent undecided and another six percent at least thinking about third party votes. How does that shake out in the last week, and do people either stay home, vote for third party or shift to one of the two major party candidates?" said Franklin.

Meanwhile, the poll shows the race is virtually tied between Sen. Ron Johnson and Russ Feingold for the U.S. Senate. Results show Feingold with 45 percent support of likely voters and 44 percent for Johnson.
