6:01 pm
>> quijano: good evening, i'm elaine quijano. with the election just nine days away, a late october surprise has shake enup the race. a new "washington post" abc news poll shows hillary clinton vus one point ahead of donald trump among likely voters. the race apparently tightened this weekend after fbi director james comey told congress he's reopening the clinton email investigation. cbs polling this weekend shows the political impact in key battleground states. for that we turn to errol barnett and cbs news election director anthony salvanto in washington. >> anthony hillary clinton has been ahead in the vote estimate the entire election, any of that changing. >> if you look at the map today, she has a lead, even a slight one in enough electoral votes to win in november. but it is by no means certain. >> and of course the big news right now is the possibility that there are more clinton server emails that could be
6:02 pm
investigated. let's just quickly hear how the running mates are characterizing this today. >> no one is above the law. >> the fbi director stepped forward, kept his word to the congress and the american people and told us there is more information and investigation is now reopened. >> i think it's now pretty clear that the fbi director doesn't know that there is anything. these could be duplicates of what has already been analyzed. they could be thing things that don't have anything to do with hillary cln ton. >> but there is still a lot of unanswered questions here. what impact -- impact might it have on the vote. >> the bullk of voters wouldn't change because partisans have largely already decided. there are very few unsure voters out there. however, what may happen is that it may hurt hillary clinton's ability to go beyond her base or pull in some of those voter whs had been unsure or on the fence rather than costing her support that she already has. >> now donald trump has struggled to galvanize republican support in reliably red states. what is new on that front.
6:03 pm
>> right. in arizona we find him in a tight race and narrow lead with hillary clinton. this is a state that usually does go republican. the story is actually similar in many other states. trump has a lot of republican support but not quite enough. so that's one of his challenges in the last week. >> his other challenge is winning over his must-win battleground states like north carolina. >> right. here we see in north carolina hillary clinton with a slight lead. this one will be about turnout. when we look at the early vote and many voters have already cast their ballots here as in many other states, we see that among registrants, democrats are tracking ahead of republicans. so donald trump does have some work to do. >> more than 20 million people have cast their ballots already. we don't know exactly who they voteed for but what other clues can we see in that? >> democrats in many places look like they are on pace with what they want their targets to be. however the election day vote, that might put more pressure on organizing for the trump
6:04 pm
campaign. >> it's not over yet. our cbs news election director anthony salvanto, thanks for your time, elaine, back to you. >> quijano: thank you. this weekend we learned fbi director james comey informed congress about the reopened investigation into clinton's emails against the wishes of his boss, attorney general loretta lynch. word is the investigation stand tonight? here's justice reporter paula reid. >> reporter: after obtaining a warrant tonight, fbi investigators are now looking at newly discovered emails related to hillary clinton's private server. the emails were discovered on a laptop belonging to clinton's top aide huma abedin and her estranged husband anthony weiner. >> today i'm announcing my resignation from congress. >> congressman weiner has been at the sr of something something scandal, the most wean somethings with an undersaged girl promptedded an investigation. they digs covered emails between abedin and other aides during the sectioning proab. >> she had a-- sources tell cbs
6:05 pm
news that abedin had no knowledge of her emails being on that device. >> it is not clear whether these new emails contain classified information or if they are just copies of things the fbi has already seen. director comey's decision to announce this development, even he acknowledges may not be significant has ignited a political fire storm. >> we never thought we were going to say thank you to anthony weinerment. >> donald trump praised comey's decision at an event in las vegas. >> the fbi is reopening their investigation into the criminal and illegal conduct of hillary clinton. >> reporter: trump previously criticized the fbi and its decision not to bring charges claiming the system is rigged. clinton did not directly address the issue today, but at a rally last night, she demanded more information from the fbi. >> voters deserve to get full and complete facts. and so we've called on director comey to explain everything
6:06 pm
right away, put it all out on the table. >> it is unlikely that investigators will be able to review the thousands of emails and make a determination about their relevance to the investigation before election day. paula reid, cbs news, washington. >> quijano: we're also following the battle for the control of the republican lead senate. democrats need to gain five seats or just four if clinton wins and tim kaine becomes the tie breaking president of the senate. john blackstone looks at the race in arizona. >> reporter: touring a high school this week, john mccain met the winning candidate in a student election. >> the election wasn't rigged. >> reporter: mccain has been trying hard not to talk about donald trump. >> no trump question. >> while trump is effectively tied with clinton in arizona, polls show mccain has a solid double digit lead over his democratic opponent kicker patrick, even she acknowledges his iconic status. >> i will be honest, i have
6:07 pm
voted for swron mccain in the past. and he's changed. >> reporter: mccain's famous name along with his ability to bring jobs to arizona and his moderate stand on immigration are seen as reasons he retains broad support in a recent poll, arizona voters gave him a 52% job approval rating. he even wins sport from 19 percent of hillary cln ton voters. kicker patrick's campaign has tried to tie mccain to trump who once dismissed mccain's time as a po-w in vietnam. >> i voted for-- obviously. >> reporter: i leaned on her like' [bleep]. >> after the release of the embarrassing open mic record he said he would no longer vote for trump. >> there was new ammunition in a radio campaign pledging more congressional gridlock. >> we will be united against any supreme court nominee that hillary clinton if she were
6:08 pm
president should put up. >> i would cross the aisle, and that's what arizonas want. they are tired the of the obstruction ism. >> arizonaans however do not appear to be tired of 80 year old john mccain. while he enjoys a significant lead in the polls right now, it is far below what he has had in earlier campaigns. john blackstone, cbs news, phoenix. >> quijano: another powerful earthquake rattled central italy sunday. the preliminary magnitude was 6.6. the strongest earthquake to hit italy in more than 35 years. it comes after a series of aftershocks last weak from an earthquake in august that killed nearly 300 people 6789 seth doane is in the ancient down of norcia. >> reporter: centuries old buildings that withstood the series of quakes that rocked this region finally collapsed in today's earthquake. nu ns fled for safer ground in norcia where the historic basilica was damaged and rubble filled streets. >> the earthquakes here never

the oath. tonight margaret brennan talked to retired jenner, former cia director michael hayden about the dang-- dangers of china on day one. >> china is not an enemy of the united states of america. there aren't any good reasons for china ever to be an enemy of the united states. people of my background actually spend more time worrying about chinese failure than we do chinese success, chain ease weakness, than we do chinese strength. >> reporter: how would they be more of a threat if they are weaker rather than stronger? >> you've got these very extensive and frankly unfounded claims to the waters of the south china sea. so you see the chinese kind of reverting to nationalism, falling back on to nationalism to keep the party in power. that's what i mean when i suggest that a failing china might actually be more dangerous than a successful china. >> reporter: what's the worst-case scenario.
6:17 pm
>> the worst-case scenario is that china does not act with patience with regard to those territorial disputes in the south china sea. am some inadvertent incident, ships banging one another, aircraft hitting one another, all of which have happened in the region. >> reporter: so when we see these reports of chinese jets buzzing american aircraft, we should be very concerned. >> i am personally very concerned. because it doesn't take much, it doesn't take much human error to turn that excess of emotion, all right, into an international incident. >> reporter: what's the best case in. >> we're talking about an increased american presence in the island chain that surrounds china. what that is from my point of view is making it more difficult for anyone to do something stupid in three, five, or ten years, in trying to convince themselves that a military option is actually a useful thing. >> reporter: is america paying enough attention to china? >> the single most important issue we have is the sign of an
6:18 pm
american relationship. day to day it doesn't look like the most urgent one. but it is by far the most important. >> reporter: here's where the candidates stand. hillary cln ton vowed to curb china's military expansion, support u.s. allies pushing back against beijing's land grabs, and confront china about its unfair trade practices. donald trump says he will build up america's military presence in asia, slap fines on chinese made imports and make it cheaper to produce goods here by lowering the corporate tax rate. margaret brennan, cbs news, new york. >> quijano: still ahead, cleveland on the verge of busting a long baseball draught.
