With 11 days to go before the elections in the United States, a Reuters poll that was published today (Saturday) determined that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was leading the presidential race by 15% among early voters. Around 19 million Americans have already exercised their right to vote in early voting states.
According to the poll, Clinton is leading by a solid gap in swing states such as Ohio and Arizona as well as in Republican Party strongholds such as Georgia and Texas. The early voting results are of extreme importance to Clinton following the FBI’s announcement that it plans on renewing the investigation into the Clinton email affair.
Yesterday, FBI Director James Comey announced that his bureau plans on investigating new emails related to the Democratic nominee, as reported by JOL News. Comey’s announcement couldn’t have come at a worse time for Clinton – only 11 days before the US presidential elections.
Earlier today, JOL News reported that FBI Director James Comey wrote a memo to his bureau explaining that he decided to announce the renewal of the investigation into the Clinton email affair due to the “political sensitivity” of the issue. According to Fox News, who obtained a memo written by Comey to his staffers, the FBI Director noted that he would not have updated Congress on the matter under normal circumstance but explained that he did so because of the proximity to the presidential elections.
