Clinton leads Trump by 4 points

Clinton leads Trump by 4 points

And the Democratic nominee herself will make a swing through the state later Monday in Grand Rapids amid a furious cross-country push in the final hours. In fact, Trump will be making two stops.

Trump will return to Northern Virginia on Sunday night, as Republicans see new hope in a state where Clinton has long held comfortable leads.

Hillary Clinton's trip to MI will be the latest by a Democratic nominee since 2004, when John Kerry visited Detroit the day before the election.

Trump will take his campaign into traditional Democratic territory on November 6 in a sign that he has not given up on appealing to people outside the Republican Party.

Mrs Clinton has also faced her own controversy over her use of a private email server for work correspondence while she was USA secretary of state.

"Let's vote for the future!" she added through the downpour, urging those who had already cast ballots to help get their friends to the polls.

Michigan, with 16 electoral votes, has voted for Democrats for president every election since it went for Clinton's husband in 1992.

President Barack Obama will also be in MI campaigning for his former Secretary of State. The outgoing president will be in Ann Arbor Monday morning.

Both candidates traveled to Florida, which is considered one of the most hotly contested states in the election.

Trump's shakiest states here appear to be Georgia, where polls have been a bit close, and Utah, where independent candidate Evan McMullin could conceivably scramble things.

Trump has made a recent push for support in the midwest state, holding a pair of rallies there last Monday while his running mate Mike PenceMike (Michael) Richard PenceExperts hedge bets as election tightens Trump: Clinton "wasting her time" in Michigan Sunday show preview: Trump, Clinton camps make final pitches MORE campaigned there on Friday. And for the second time in less than 48 hours, Clinton will return to OH, which has consistently been one of Trump's strongest battlegrounds, to hold a rally with basketball star and Cleveland's hometown hero LeBron James. "We're doing well everywhere", Trump said.

On Saturday evening, Mr Trump was briefly rushed off stage by Secret Service agents at a rally in Reno, Nevada, in a false alarm.

Clinton held a steady lead with women, 49 to 42 percent for Trump, while Trump has expanded his advantage with men, 49 to 43 percent.

US presidential elections, however, are not decided by the national popular vote but rather in the Electoral College, where the results are tallied in each of the 50 states and the national capital, Washington. Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson gets six percent, while the Green Party's Jill Stein gets two percent.

"Overall, Democrats have built a lead of more than 72,000 votes there - 13.7 points ahead of Republicans, and slightly larger than Obama's 2012 edge".

Almost 48 percent of all registered voters in Florida have either voted early or voted by mail, according to new numbers reported Sunday to the state Division of Elections.

While an FBI investigation in July concluded that no criminal charges should be brought, the agency's director James Comey announced the case was being reopened just days before election day after new emails "pertinent" to the investigation were discovered.
