5:34 pm
weeks ago, to two points now. so with one week to go, let's bring in our campaign correspondents, nancy cordes and major garrett. first, let's go to nancy.o how is clinton responding to these polls? >> reporter: scott, she herself has not said anything about them, but her aides insisted to us that this is what they've always predicted, that the raced would tighten at the end. in fact, they've even begun airing ads in a couple of states that should be pretty safe fore democrats, like new mexico and michigan. ke they say it's not a sign that they're getting nervous; it'sgeg simply a sign that they've amassed a pretty big war chest and this is their last chance ta spend it. >> pelley: and, nancy, what do. we know today about the f.b.i. email investigation? >> reporter: well, we know that f.b.i. agents at quantico in virginia have begun beg electronically sifting through the hundreds of thousands of emails that they say are on anthony weiner's laptop. they believe that the number of emails belonging to huma abedin
5:35 pm
they've actually built a pretty sophisticated software program to weed through them, using keywords like "classified" toor try to condense the emails to those that they believe could be relevant to the clinton investigation, weed out duplicates that they've already, read before. a process they say could takeces days before they even begin actually reading the emails, scott. >> pelley: they're trying to figure out whether there's any classified information that passed on hillary clinton's pre pr major garrett, trump is making hay out of clinton's problems, but the f.b.i. is looking intohf his world as well. >> reporter: that's right, scott. the big topic is russia. the f.b.i. spent many months this summer looking into possible connections between donald trump, those in his political inner circle, or his businesses, with the russian government or russian oligarchs. in the end, the f.b.i. found some smoke, but not much fire.un there are also reports that
5:36 pm
preliminary f.b.i. investigation. but he assures me, scott, there is no f.b.i. investigation. one thing the f.b.i. did f conclude is, the russian government is more interested in disrupting the democratic process here in america, than in aiding trump.ic >> pelley: and how's the campaign seeing this final week of the race? >> reporter: well, scott, to answer that question, you have to understand the trump campaign models differently than anyone else. they see five or six points that other pollsters do not see.ot where do tfi low-propensity voters, voters who haven't showed up before. they believe there are two or three points there, that these people are going to surge to the polls unexpectedly. they also expect republicans to come home in the final days, one or two points there, and then maybe one point of psychological people associated with trump bun finally convinced he's going to win. that's why they believe, inince battleground states and new states they're putting on map, they can win this race. >> pelley: we'll see a week from today. major garrett, nancy cordes, thanks very much.
5:37 pm
balance in battleground states, especially in florida and here in ohio, if they turn out for clinton as strongly as they did for president obama. in a story for "60 minutes," we spoke with voters on the east side of cleveland, many of whomv worship at the olivet institutional baptist church, which is led by pastor jawanza colvin. >> i think what's going to happen is that people are going to have to vote-- vote with passion and with purpose. because this election is not every election is this election is existential. when you look at what's happening around the country, the rhetoric, the kind of loss of civility. you won't vote, you're undecided or you will be voting?nd >> yeah, i'm going to vote. >> pelley: in the neighborhoodsr reverend colvin is getting out the vote, and lisa tolbert promised she'll be counted. >> we have to have a president, we have to have a president. these are the two choices we have. >> pelley: my wife says, if you

5:40 pm
there's more things that she's done, that we don't know about. >> reporter: neighbors are displaying their support with political yard signs. james gillespie, a democrat who campaigned twice for obama, is switching parties this year. >> a lot of the corruption that i saw in hillary clinton is coming out in the news right now, and it's a big part of why i'm not willing to support her. >> reporter: back at the restaurant, kim chappelle thinks trump is unelectable. >> i couldon vote for donald trump. i just couldn't do it. >> reporter: early voting began here in ohio nearly three weeks ago, scott. ne so even before the controversy broke on friday, more than aon million ballots had already been cast, statewide. >> pelley: michelle, thanks ver. much.ks of course, both candidates would like to change the subject to the economy. chip reid spoke to small business owners for our series,
