>> Is down to the wire. And some polls are showing Donald Trump closing in on Hillary Clinton. But our poll shows that Hillary Clinton still has a very consistent and strong lead in the race. I'm Chris Kahn, Reuters polling editor. The Reuters IPSO's poll shows Hillary Clinton with a six percentage point lead over Donald Trump.

It's pretty much been that way over the past week. Both before the FBI made its announcement, that it was looking at more emails connected to her personal server. And after the FBI made its announcement.>> If they want to look at some more emails of one of my staffers, by all means, go ahead, look at them.

>> So, it's been a pretty consistent lead in the Reuter's IPSO's poll. Now other polls are showing a tightening race. If you look at some of these polling aggregators that group together a bunch of polls. You see the lead dropping for Hillary Clinton down to maybe two or one percentage point.

>> We're leading numerous national polls.>> I will say that in 2012 we saw the same thing between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. This is just what polls do just a few days out before the election. And they tend to get tighter and tighter and tighter as a lot of undecided voters start committing in these polls, and start picking one candidate or the other.

It's important to note, in 2012, that Barack Obama had maybe less than a one percentage point lead over Mitt Romney. And a few days before the election he still won with 300 or more electoral votes. So it was a very tight national poll back in 2012 but still very clear victory for Barack Obama.
00:01:25
Bottom line, with just days left before the election Hillary Clinton still has a clear lead over Donald Trump. She has been leading consistently for several weeks and we don't see that changing in our poll.
