As Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton — plus their surrogates — blitz the nation for one final push, major national polls have tightened less than 24 hours before Election Day.

Clinton continues to lead most of the polls as of Monday, but her lead shrank considerably.

Pollsters surveyed thousands of respondents within the last five days, including Sunday’s announcement from FBI Director James Comey that the newly discovered e-mails did not change his recommendation that Clinton should not be charged for her handling of classified information.
