MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The release of a video showing Donald Trump making crude comments about women is causing wide swings in public opinion about the race in Wisconsin.

A Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday shows Hillary Clinton leading Trump by 7 points, up from 3 points three weeks ago.

The poll was taken between Oct. 6, the day before the Trump video was released, until Sunday night just before the second presidential debate.

Clinton saw her numbers improve across several demographics over the weekend, including men, women, evangelicals and non-Hispanic whites.

Overall, few voters see Clinton or Trump to be honest. Only 29 percent say it describes Clinton, compared with 33 percent for Trump.

The poll of 878 likely voters has a margin of error of 3.9 percentage points.
