Clinton also has the lead in a poll of schoolchildren.
The last Marquette University Law poll before the Nov. 8 election has found 46 percent of likely voters favor Hillary Clinton, while 40 support Donald Trump. Gary Johnson and Jill Stein snagged four and three percent of the votes, respectively. Six percent of respondents, the same amount in the early October poll, say they don’t know who they’re voting for or won’t vote for any of these candidates. Respondents were almost evenly divided in how they feel about Clinton’s use of a private email server.
In the Senate race, Russ Feingold has a one-point lead among likely voters over Ron Johnson. As the CapTime’s Jessie Opoien points out, Feingold has had the lead in every MU law poll in the last year.
An education-tech company called Newsela polled students over the last two weeks and found that they favored Hillary Clinton by a wide margin. Interestingly, the opinions of students in Wisconsin mirrored those of adults. Forty-six percent of the over 7,000 kids polled favored Clinton, while 40 percent went for Trump, eight percent went for Gary Johnson and six percent went for Jill Stein. The younger the children were, the more likely they were to favor Clinton, whereas high school students’ opinions were more varied.
