Election HQ Could Clinton Email Investigation Flip Key States?
Following the bombshell news that the FBI is renewing its investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server, many have speculated that this development could have a direct impact on the presidential election.
On "America's Newsroom" today, Byron York pointed out that a new ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll found that strong enthusiasm for Clinton has ebbed since FBI Director James Comey's announcement about the email probe.
46 percent of likely voters support Donald Trump in the latest results, with 45 percent for Clinton.
"That's a huge development. It showed Clinton 12 points ahead not that long ago," York said. "This is a fluid race. It is still moving, and anybody would say the email affair makes it move a little more."
Bill Hemmer pointed out that Clinton still has an easier path to 270 electoral votes than Trump, but she will need to pick up a critical battleground state, such as Colorado, Pennsylvania, Ohio or Florida.
Hemmer noted that Clinton is looking pretty good in those states and other swing states, but he wondered if this email investigation news could change that narrative.
"We've been surprised before," York said. "There's no reason to suggest the surprises have stopped. So we'll see more probably in the next seven days."
