A week before the U.S. presidential elections, Republican nominee Donald Trump has taken a slender lead of one percentage point against his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for the first time since May in a major national tracking poll. Trump has made small gains in Democrats, from 5 percent up to 9 percent, and he's also seen a consolidation of support from Republicans and GOP-leaning independents, 86 percent of whom now back him, up 6 percentage points from the last poll.
And yesterday, an ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll put Trump a point ahead of his Democratic rival.
Trump and other Republicans have seized on the announcement, which indicated no wrongdoing on Clinton's part, to cast doubt on Clinton's integrity, hoping the news will damage not just Clinton but Democrats' chances of regaining control of one or both chambers of Congress.
The FBI reportedly examined allegations the Clintons profited personally from their charitable foundation and that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort had ties to pro-Russian groups as a result of his political consultant work on behalf of the former Russian-backed president of Ukraine, Victor Yanukovich.

"I would rather be here talking about almost anything else", Clinton said Tuesday during a rally in Florida where she levelled a series of attacks on Trump's character and preparedness for the White House.
Edenbridge Bonfire Society spokesman Jeni Fox said: "We are literally helping Trump to live out his own catchphrase "burn it down".
She also continued to level attacks against Trump's ability to control nuclear weapons.
At a rally in Florida Mrs Clinton lashed out at a heckler who shouted at her: "Bill Clinton is a rapist". Maybe, for you, it's his risky statements about using nuclear weapons.
"I wonder if he even knows that a single nuclear warhead can kill millions of people", she added.
Republicans have hammered the Democratic candidate as scandal-prone since FBI Director James Comey revived questions about her handling of emails while she was secretary of state.
As head of DOJ's Office of Legislative Affairs, Kadzik now serves as a liaison to Congress - a position that would give him ample access to FBI investigators and information dealing with any or all of the Clintons' cases.
Indeed, Clinton's speeches in this final full week of campaigning have overwhelmingly focused on Trump.
If the Federal Bureau of Investigation finds emails Abedin sent or received through the clintonemail.com server archived on the device recently recovered from her home, that might appear to conflict with what she told the Federal Bureau of Investigation earlier this year. "It is pretty odd to put something like that out with such little information right before an election", she said.
