Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump remain locked in a tight contest for the U.S. presidency, nine days ahead of the November 8 election, with the campaign roiled by the new investigation into her emails while she served as secretary of state.

One tracking poll of voter sentiment, by The Washington Post and ABC News, showed Clinton clinging to a narrow edge over Trump by a single percentage point, 46 to 45 percent.

The two news outlets said the poll of likely voters covered part of the time after FBI Director James Comey announced that investigators are taking a new look at her use of a private email server while she was the country's top diplomat from 2009 to 2013. It came in a probe Comey previously ended in July when he declared that she had been "extremely careless" in her handling of national security material found in her emails, but said that no criminal charges were warranted.

Impact on November 8 vote

The Post-ABC survey said that more than six in 10 voters said the new investigation would make no difference in their vote on November 8, but of those who said it would matter, more than 3 in 10 said it would make them less likely to vote for her, and only 2 percent that it would influence them to vote for her. New polling by a raft of news organizations and universities in the coming days could give a better idea whether the FBI investigation will matter in how people vote.

Clinton, who has often said her use of the private email server was a mistake, has demanded that Comey spell out details of what is in the emails that were found on the computer of one of her key aides, Huma Abedin, shared with her estranged husband, Anthony Weiner. Authorities discovered the emails while investigating allegations that Weiner, a disgraced former congressman from New York, was "sexting" with a 15-year-old girl.
