this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. reporting tonight from cleveland, ohio. >> pelley: this is the state where past and future of the american presidency meet, birth place of seven presidents, graveyard of more than a few presidential dreams. no republican has won without ohio since lincoln, and the polls show tonight republican donald trump tied here with with democrat hillary clinton. both have visited ohio more than any other battleground, and they've poured $32 million into advertising here. that's four bucks for every registered buckeye. here's mark strassmann. >> we'll make america great again. >> reporter: in the courtship of ohio. >> helping children has been a cause of her life. >> reporter: ...many voters want a restraining order. on average, throughout the
6:32 pm
state, an ad for trump or clinton runs on local television every three minutes. >> overwhelmingly with ads, overwhelming with calls, overwhelming with nonstop political stuff. >> reporter: linda merriam is a registered independent. betty drake is a conservative democrat. if you get up at 7:00 a.m., by what time you have heard your first ad? >> probably, like, 7:03 appropriate 7:03. that soon. >> yeah, that soon. >> i'm donald trump. >> i'm hillary clinton. >> reporter: since june, both presidential campaigns have spent more than $32 million on television ads in ohio. and many ohioans have stopped answering the door and the phone. you get calls all day long from numbers you don't recognize. >> right, yup. >> reporter: these are robocallers? >> robocallers, yes. >> reporter: and then right on cue-- ( phone ringing )
6:33 pm
what do you think that phone call was? >> i think it was a robocaller. >> reporter: does this kind of blitz work? >> no. >> reporter: professor justin buchler: >> when you have as many ads as voters in ohio see, the marginal benefit of every additional ad is basically nothing. >> reporter: drake will vote for trump. merriam is undecided. nothing anybody has said has changed your mind one bit? >> no. >> reporter: that's a lot of noise for nothing. >> . it's a lot of noise for nothing. >> in hillary clinton's america. >> reporter: noise that one one here can muffle until next tuesday. mark strassmann, cbs news, cleveland. >> pelley: there is some evidence that ads do drive voters to polls. four years ago, the turnout in battleground states was seven points higher than the rest of the country. the real clear politics average of major national polls shows
6:34 pm
clinton's lead is shrinking tonight from seven points two weeks ago, to two points now. so with one week to go, let's bring in our campaign corresponds nancy cordes and major garrett. first, let's go to nancy. 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 race would tighten at the end. in fact, they've even begun airing ads in a couple of states that should be pretty safe for democrats like new mexico and michigan. they say it's not a sign that they're getting nervous. it's simply a sign that they've amassed a pretty big war chest and this is their last chance to spend it. >> pelley: and, nancy, what do we know today about the f.b.i. e-mail investigation? >> reporter: well, we know that f.b.i. agents at quantico in virginia have begun electronically sifting through the hundreds of thousands of e-mails that they say are on anthony weiner's laptop. they believe that the number of e-mails belonging to huma abedin
6:35 pm
numbers in the thousandses, and they've actually built a pretty sophisticate software program to weed through them using keywords like "classified" to try to condense the e-mails 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 take days before they even begin actually reading the e-mails, scott. >> pelley: they're trying to figure out whether there's any classified information that passed on hillary clinton's private e-mail server. major garrett, trump is making hay out of clinton's problems, but the f.b.i. is looking into 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 noak smokebut not much fire. there are also reports that former trump campaign chairman
6:36 pm
paul manny fort is under f.b.i. investigation. but he asures me, scott, there is no f.b.i. investigation. one thingt f.b.i. did conclude is the russian government is more disrupted in disrupting the democratic process here in america than aigd trump. >> 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. where do they find it? low-propensity voters, voters who haven't showed up before. they believe there are two or three points there, these people will surge to the polls unexpectedly. they also expect republicans to come home in the final days, one or two points there, and maybe one point of psycholog people associated with trump but finally convinced he's going to win. that's why they believe in battleground states and new state 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.
6:37 pm
african americans could tip the 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 whom worship at the olivet institutional baptist church, which is led by pastor jawanza colvin. >> i think what's going to happen is people are going to have to vote-- vote with passion and with purpose. because this election is not simply significant because every election is important. 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 undecide or you will be voting? >> yeah, i'm going to vote. >> reporter: in the neighborhoods, reverend colvin is getting out the vote, and lisa tollbert promised she'll be counted. >> we have to have a president, we have to have a president. these are the two choice we
6:38 pm
have. >> pelley: my wife says if you don't vote you can't complain. >> you can't, that's right, thoorpt, that's right. that's right. >> pelley: when african americans vote in large numbers in ohio, ohio votes democratic. >> yes. >> pelley: and when they don't come to the polls, ohio votes republican. >> yes. >> pelley: what's going to happen? >> i'm going to pray that they come to the polls. i'm gonna -- >> but you're not feeling that groundswell? >> i'm not hearing it. >> pelley: when you look into this congregation, the sunday before election day, what are you going to tell them? >> i'm going to say, "when you go to the polls, remember who you're taking with you. first, i want to think about the past. we're taking medgar evers with us. we're taking freedom summer with us. but not only are we taking the past, but we are also taking future. you're taking your kids, your granddaughters, and kids unborn. >> pelley: hillary clinton is also concerned that voters might change their minds in the last
6:39 pm
minute because of that f.b.i. e-mail investigation. here's michelle miller. >> reporter: at price hill chili restaurant in hamilton county this morning, they served up hot coffee, scrambled eggs and a side of politics. >> i'm standing by hillary. >> i'm really rooting trump this year. >> reporter: the f.b.i.'s decision to reopen hillary clinton's e-mail investigation doesn't seem to be change many minds. are people pretty much just dug in? >> i think they are pretty much set at this point. >> reporter: the controversy isn't a big deal for 60-year-old kim chappelle, a lifelong republican who is voting for clinton. isn't this a new round of e-mails? >> it is. but from the previous, all the previous e-mail incidents nothing ever became of it, so i'm figuring nothing is becoming of this. >> reporter: 75-year-old david stanger says the f.b.i. review confirms he's making the right choice with donald trump.
6:40 pm
>> the fact that they opened up the investigation tells me that 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 corruption they 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 couldn't in good congress vote for donald trump. i just couldn't do it. >> reporter: early voting began here in ohio nearly three weeks ago, scott. so even before the controversy broke on friday, more than a million ballots had already been cast statewide. >> pelley: michelle, thanks very much. of course, both candidates would like to change the subject to the economy. chip reid spoke to small business owners for our series
6:41 pm
"closing arguments." >> reporter: so what are you making here? >> i am making peanut butter buckeyes. >> reporter: buckeyes. >> yes. >> reporter: fall is candy season and it's when talk in donna's shop turns to politics. sandusky is a swing can county. president obama won it twice, but so did george w. bush. and who would you like to see win this election? >> i would like to see donald trump win this election. >> reporter: mcneemer says she especially likes his plans for the can economy. >> when you want business to grow, would you not need somebody that knows business? >> reporter: she prefers trump's current plan on the minimum wage. he wants the states to decide. clinton supports a minimum mum as high as $15 an hour. >> if we're forced to pay $15 for minimum wage, guess who's going to work more hours? me. because i'm going to have to lay off employees. i can't-- you know, we can't handle that kind of increase. >> reporter: she also favors trump's tax plan with
6:42 pm
across-the-board cuts, the biggest for the wealthiest. clinton's plan would raise taxes on the rich. >> i understand that they're wealthy and they make a lot of money, but i also understand that they worked really hardinar money, and if they have to pay more taxes, it has to go somewhere. it's going to come down to me. >> reporter: across the county, in bellevue, ohio, richard stegman has a very different view. you're a big fan of hillary clinton. >> oh, gosh, yes. >> reporter: stegman owns the victorian tudor inn. >> all right, ladies, here we go. >> a b & b he bought right beforey recession. >> evidence this close, so close to losing everything. >> reporter: he credits the president's policy with turning the economy around and thinks clinton would state course. on the economic front what, do you like most about hillary clinton? >> well, i think it all goes under the exwrael o umbrella ofr experience. >> reporter: how about minimum wage, where do you stand on that? >> i have been paying my staff
6:43 pm
$14 to $15 an hour. >> reporter: that's well above the minimum wage. >> because i need good people. >> reporter: and he prefers clinton's tax policies to trump's? >> his tax proposal benefits a wide variety of people and that's what we need. we don't need a tax policy that really benefits just a small segment. i think hers is very broad. >> reporter: you think she'll help the middle class more than donald trump? >> oh, oh, oh, clearly. >> reporter: two small business owners on opposite sides in a county that could determine which way this battleground state swings. chip reid, cbs news, sandusky county, ohio. >> pelley: and it will be determined a week from tonight. cbs news election night coverage will begin next tuesday at 7:00 eastern time. today, the oklahoma highway patrol released video of the deadly end to a week-long manhunt. the suspect, michael vance, was wanted for a series of shootings, and he did not go down without a fight.
