ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democrat Hillary Clinton entered the last days of campaigning with events on Saturday (November 5) in Florida, a swing state that could prove decisive in Tuesday's U.S. presidential election. Clinton is trying to convince last-minute undecided voters and trying to rally her base to turn out on Election Day. Opinion polls show Clinton still holds advantages over her Republican rival Donald Trump in states that could be critical in deciding the election, but her lead has narrowed after a revelation a week ago that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was looking into a new trove of emails as part of its probe into her handling of classified information while she was secretary of state. The state opinion polls have found Florida as one of the most competitive among the swing states - those that are hotly contested because their voters can swing either to Republicans or Democrats. The 2000 presidential election was decided in Florida after a dispute over votes and recounting of ballots went to the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled in favor of Republican George W. Bush over Democrat Al Gore. The Real Clear Politics average of Florida polls found Clinton with a lead of about 1 percentage point - indicating the race there is a virtual tie.
