ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was hustled off the stage by security agents at a campaign event in Reno on Saturday after a perceived threat in the crowd. Two security agents grabbed Trump by the shoulders and rushed him back stage. The threat was unclear. Trump returned to the stage a short while later to continue his rally speech. It was the final Saturday of the presidential campaign. Trump criss-crossed the country on Saturday, concentrating on swing states such as Nevada, where the latest polls show him with a slight lead. Opinion polls show his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton still holds advantages 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. A McClatchy-Marist opinion poll released on Saturday of voters nationwide showed Clinton leading by 1 percentage point compared to 6 percentage points in September. A Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll on Saturday showed Clinton ahead by 4 percentage points nationally compared to 5 points on Friday. Earlier in the day, Trump campaigned in North Carolina along with wife Melania, who has been nearly invisible after her speech at the Republican National Convention in July that contained passages lifted from a previous speech by Michelle Obama. She took a more active role this week with a speech in Pennsylvania before Saturday's speech in Wilmington, North Carolina.
