Election update

According to the Washington Post, [FBI director] Comey sent a letter to key Congress members notifying them that the FBI had finished its high-speed and high-stakes review of additional emails that were sent either to or from Hillary Clinton and were found on a laptop belonging to former Congressman Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife, Clinton aide Huma Abedin. The end result, Comey said, was that he was not going to recommend charges against the Democratic presidential nominee:

Just heard a bit of Clinton's speech in a black church in Mt. Airy, Philadelphia. Was struck by how much more appealing she is when she doesn't shout.

Are some women afraid to tell their husbands they're voting for Clinton?

Early-vote statistics from battleground states with large Hispanic populations show record turnout among a bloc that has voted at a lower rate than whites or blacks in past elections.

Hillary Clinton has consistently led in a greater portion of presidential polls in the two months heading into Election Day than President Barack Obama did in both 2008 and 2012.  The Democratic nominee is ahead of GOP nominee Donald Trump in 93 percent of polls conducted in the two months before Election Day. Trump leads in just 3 percent of the polls. Another 3 percent of polls show a tied race.
