hillary clinton. look what donald trump would have to do to win. he would have to carry every single one of the states that are remaining tossup. and watch what happens if he does that. he carries arizona, florida, georgia, north carolina, new hampshire, the second congressional district in maine and he's still short. so, that's why donald trump is looking up in the industrial midwest. looking at these bright blue states, hoping to turn one of them red. if he can do that, if he can, say, win the state of michigan, he gets to 280. as for hillary clinton, she just has to hold the states where she currently has a lead. >> florida would put her over the top. >> reporter: florida would be lights out, no way trump could really realistically win. >> but it's a dead heat there in the polls. jon karl tracking the map for us. we'll see you tomorrow night, jon. in the meantime, you saw the map there. a lot closer in the battlegrounds than it was ten days ago before the fbi announced the newly discovered e-mails. tonight, with clinton now in clear, there may be little time to regain all of that momentum, and really neither side is happy about it. let's bring in abc's senior justice correspondent pierre
thomas, who is with us live in new york tonight. and pierre, the fbi knows they'll be under scrutiny after this election about any possible role the fbi played? >> reporter: david, a source familiar with comey's thinking said he faced difficult choices, bad choices, he made the best decision he could. but what this means, he will have a prickly relationship with clinton or trump, regardless of who is elected. but i'm told that he's just fine with being seen as independent, david. >> so, he could have a difficult relationship with either president-elect, whoever it might be. and how long is his term, pierre? >> reporter: he has a ten-year term. it expires in 2023, and he plans on serving every bit of it, i'm told. >> pierre thomas live here in times square, as well. pierre, thank you. and just hours from now, election day begins. we'll have it all. our coverage begins right here tomorrow night with "world news tonight," and then at 7:00 p.m. eastern, i'll be joining george and the entire powerhouse political team. and, of course, we'll be here all night long. in the meantime tonight, we turn to other news this monday, and new developments in that horrific kidnapping in south carolina. a woman chained inside a storage
