Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were in virtual dead heats in two states the Republican nominee must win in order to become the next US president, according to surveys released a day before Americans go to the polls. While polls showed Clinton is leading in these three states, Pennsylvania and MI are known to spring unknown surprises on election day. On Sunday, Comey informed Congress that the review was completed and that nothing in it was found to impact the closed investigation, in which Clinton was cleared of criminal wrongdoing.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission announced that as of Monday morning, 797,740 people had returned absentee ballots to municipal clerks.

A CBS News poll had Clinton ahead of Trump by 4 points nationally, 45%-41%.

Nearing the end of his two terms in the White House, Obama was nostalgic as he launched his own busy day of events, noting that he was probably making his last campaign swing for the foreseeable future. On Sunday, he made a surprising stop in Minnesota, where polling shows Clinton with a sizable lead.

Trump must win in Florida if he is to have any chance of getting to 270. Her one nod to him was to say that people are rejecting a worldview "defined by fear and division" to embrace her more hopeful vision.

Clinton's chances are even better over at The Upshot. Trump leads independent candidate Evan McMullin by 16 points, with Hillary Clinton in third place.

For both presidential candidates, stopping in pivotal North Carolina was a top priority.

When Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein are included in a four-way poll, Clinton's lead over Trump is 2.2 percentage points, according to the RealClear Politics average.
