Pollsters Find ‘At Best Mixed Evidence’ Comey Letter Swayed Election

FBI Director James Comey said this week that he is “mildly nauseous” at the idea that the FBI may have swayed the presidential election results. A new report may ease that nausea, if only a little.

“We would conclude there is at best mixed evidence to suggest that the FBI announcement tipped the scales of the race,” wrote a panel of polling experts in a report released Thursday, about the FBI’s Oct. 28 announcement that it was investigating new information regarding Hillary Clinton’s emails.

The new report, from the American Association for Public Opinion Research, goes far beyond the Comey letter, however. CONT.
