>> When we win on November 8th.>> The FBI bombshell on Clinton's e-mails has changed the complexion of the Presidential race.>> There is no case.>> I'm James Ollefent, political correspondent for Reuters.

So the threat of a president Trump many convince some of these more lackadaisical voters to get off their couches and into a voting booth.
