WASHINGTON, Oct. 31 (UPI) -- Sixty-three percent of likely voters in an ABC News/Washington Post poll said the FBI's review of additional emails in connection with Hillary Clinton's use of a private server will make no difference in how they vote in the Nov. 8 election.

But 34 percent of likely voters said they are less likely to vote for Clinton against Republican nominee Donald Trump after FBI Director James Comey's announcement Friday that the agency is re-opening its investigation of the Democratic candidate. Also, 2 percent said they are more likely to vote for the Democrat and 1 percent said they have no opinion.

Among Clinton supporters, 7 percent say the matter makes them less likely to support her and 13 percent of Democrats and 15 percent of liberals feel that way. Among groups already generally supporting Trump, 47 percent of conservatives and 52 percent of Republicans say they are less likely to support Clinton.

The question was asked of 480 likely voters Friday through Saturday with a margin of error of 5 percentage points.

Other tracking poll questions were asked from Tuesday through Friday of 1,160 likely voters with a margin of error of 3 percentage points. Overall, Clinton drew 46 percent and Trump was at 45 percent in interviews over the four days.
