Many popular polls favor Hillary Clinton to win the presidential election on Nov. 8. However, Donald Trump has been closing in after the FBI announced it would further investigate Clinton in connection with leaked emails.
As our chart shows, there are still votes up for grabs in so-called swing or battleground states which could go to either candidate. With just five days to go until the polling stations open on Tuesday, Clinton’s prospects are still looking slightly better than Trumps.
This chart shows how many electoral votes come from states leaning towards Clinton or Trump and those from in swing states (less than a week before the presidential election).
