With less than a week until Election Day, several polls show Donald Trump is closing in on Hillary Clinton nationwide and leading in Ohio. The author of a recent book on Ohio's role in picking a president says the FBI’s decision to announce it's reviewing emails from the computer of a Clinton aide could be historic.

Election analyst Kyle Kondik with the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics notes that Clinton's lead has been shrinking.
