More Americans than not think Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who recently had the FBI reopen its investigation into her email server, has done something illegal, according to a McClatchy-Marist Poll released Friday.

According to the survey, a whopping 83 percent of likely voters said they think the former secretary of state did something wrong, while 51 percent think she has participated in illegal activity. Thirty-two percent said they believe she acted unethically while just 13 percent think she did nothing wrong.

Clinton’s email woes appear to be heavily impacting her chances of winning just days ahead of the election. In a four way race she is in neck-and-neck with GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, coming with at 44 percent and 43 percent respectively with libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein trailing with 6 percent and 2 percent of the vote.

In a two-way match up, Clinton let Trump 46 percent to his 44 percent.

Trump was perceived slightly better than Clinton in terms of voter’s views of his ethics. Seventy-nine percent of those surveyed said thing believe he has done something wrong, while just 26 percent think he’s done something illegal. Fifty-three percent think he’s dome something unethical but not illegal. Only 17 percent of likely voters think he hasn’t done anything wrong.

Both had astoundingly low favorability ratings with  57 percent saying they have unfavorable views of her to Trump’s 61 percent.

The Marist poll, which was funded by McCatchy was conducted  from Nov. 1-3 on the answers of 1,587 adults across the country.
