Just one week after the FBI announced it would be renewing its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, a Reuters poll grants the Democratic presidential candidate a 6% lead over her Republican opponent.

Two days following a national poll that placed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in the lead for the first time in six months, his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton is once again in the lead. A new Reuters/Ipsos daily tracking poll grants Clinton a 6% lead over Trump. 45% of voters backed Clinton, whereas 39% supported Trump.

The poll was conducted following FBI Director James Comey’s announcement to renew investigations into Clinton’s email scandal. Yet the data collected from the poll remained similar to that of a poll performed before the announcement.

However, a majority of the polls over the past few days have indicated that Clinton’s lead is shrinking, as several of them have suggested a significant decline. According to RealClearPolitics, a political website that averages most major opinion polls, Clinton’s lead has been reduced from 4.6% to 1.7%.
