Wisconsin voters are still not in love with the presumptive presidential nominees. A new Marquette Law school shows Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump among likely voters 46% to 37%. That's about the same as in March.

"Each of the candidates have some pretty serious damaging effects of personality traits," said Marquette University Law School Professor Charles Franklin.

Clinton and Trump have something in common - Wisconsin voters don't like them very much. Both lost big in Wisconsin's April primary.

64% have an unfavorable view of Trump. 58% feel the same way about Clinton.

There are also concerns with Trump within the state GOP ranks.Right now more are saying they may not vote in November.

"While Republicans have come home to Trump in some extent there remains enough very dissatisfied with him that's its having this effect on turnout as a party as a whole," said Franklin.

State Democrats are also still divided as well. 67% of Sanders' voters say they will vote for Clinton, 4% for Trump, 24% said neither.

"As a result division within the Democratic party is less about turnout but more about the unwillingness of many Sanders supporters to vote for her against Trump," said Franklin.

In the U.S. Senate race, Democrat Russ Feingold leads Republican Senator Ron Johnson 51% to 42%.

Speaker Paul Ryan has endorsed Donald Trump. 54% of all Wisconsin voters in the MU poll said that was a mistake. But 69% of Republicans and Independents say it was the right decision
