HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — A newly released poll from the Hampton University Center for Public Policy shows Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton leading 45-41 over GOP nominee Donald Trump ahead of Election Day.
The results are the opposite of a poll released Nov. 2 — after FBI Director James Comey announced newly discovered Clinton emails would be looked at as a part of an unrelated investigation into Anthony Weiner. Trump led Clinton in that poll 44-41.
Voters were asked in the latest Hampton poll if the news of the FBI investigating the emails impacted their voting decision. A major of voters in the poll — 65 percent — said the news had not impacted their decision.
Meanwhile, 29 percent said the news made them more likely to vote for Trump. Comey announced Sunday that, after looking at the emails, its decision to not recommend charges had not been changed.
Clinton’s lead in the Hampton poll is slimmer than a 6-point margin in a poll released early Monday by the Christopher Newport University Wason Center for Public Policy.
Millions of voters will line up Tuesday to decide the next President of the United States. WAVY News 10 will have full coverage of the election and the results on air and online.
