Following the FBI’s renewed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, a new round of battleground state polls conducted shows the race for the White House is tightening in the eight states that could make or break the presidential election.
On Friday, Donald Trump spoke to a crowd in Manchester, New Hampshire regarding the FBI reopening its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server. Trump seized the opportunity to deflect from the debacle of his presidential campaign and to shift the focus onto Clinton. The latest poll from Remington Research Group shows evidence of the GOP presidential nominee closing the gap between him and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton following the reopened investigation.
In Ohio, Trump leads Clinton by 5 points, 48 percent to 43 percent.
Trump also leads by four percentage points in Florida and Nevada, 48 to 44 percent in both states.
In North Carolina that business mogul maintains a slightly smaller two point lead over Clinton, 47 percent to 45 percent.
But in Wisconsin and Virginia, Clinton pulled ahead of Trump. The Democratic presidential nominee has a four point lead in both states, with 46 percent of the vote to Trump’s 42 percent, in both states.
In Pennsylvania Clinton leads Trump by two points, 45 to 43 percent.
In Colorado the race remains close, with Clinton ahead by just one point, 45 to 44 percent.
Axiom Strategies and Remington Research Group conducted the survey of eight battleground states on Sunday, October 30.
Compared to the results from one week ago, where Clinton had a clear nation-wide lead over Trump, this week the race seems to have shift slightly in Trump’s favor just eight days before Election Day.
