ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) +++AUDIO AS INCOMING+++ Story: Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton appealed for support at an African-American church in Philadelphia on Sunday (November 6), telling worshippers there have been "a lot of distractions" in this presidential campaign. But she urged them not to let the problems keep them from voting. "We're not all going to agree on everything," she told the Mt. Airy Church of God and Christ. "But if we come together with that common vision...we will find common ground," she said. Clinton has been struggling to hold onto a lead in national polls since the FBI revealed that it was examining new emails in its investigation of her use of a private email server during her term as U.S. secretary of state. The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll shows Clinton with a 5 percentage point lead over her Republican rival Donald Trump in the national survey - 44 percent to 39 percent support - while races in the swing states of Florida, North Carolina have shifted from Clinton's control to being too close to call. Both candidates on Sunday were scheduled to campaign heavily in key swing states such as Ohio, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire.
