>> Any reaction to the FBI investigation?>> Friday's news about the FBI again looking in to Hillary Clinton's emails greeted by Donald Trump with glee, and perhaps relief. The latest Reuters Ipsos poll showing the Republican needs to find some way of turning this race around. The survey, completed just before the FBI news broke, showing Clinton expanding her lead to around six percentage points nationally.

She had led by about three percentage points last week. Donald Trump still leads among white women. But that lead has really narrowed over the past week. Other major groups that Republicans tend to do well in, one big one is white, college-educated men. This is a group that Mitt Romney in 2012 did extremely well with.

Right now, Hilary Clinton also ahead.>> But the poll also show both candidates remain highly unpopular and between a quarter and a fifth of likely voters aren't ready to commit to either Trump or Clinton when asked.

These are likely voters, but we don't know how they're going to vote on Election Day and that means anything can happen
