The US presidential race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is getting tighter, although Clinton still holds an edge over Trump, an American analyst says.

“Barring anything dramatic happening over the next five days or so, it would appear that Hillary Clinton would be the winner,” said Keith Preston, editor of the AttacktheSystem.com.

However, if a new scandal or controversy involving Clinton emerges, it would put Trump on the top, Preston told Press TV on Thursday.

On Wednesday, Clinton and Trump attacked one another's character as they pushed their closing arguments six days before the US presidential election.

Speaking to supporters in Pensacola, Florida, Trump argued that Clinton was unqualified to lead the country, calling her "totally unhinged."

Campaigning in Las Vegas, Nevada, Clinton blamed Trump for creating resentment among different groups in the US, citing his rhetoric about women, Mexican-Americans and Muslims.

According to a

RealClearPolitics average of recent polls, Clinton's lead had declined from 4.6 points on Friday to 1.7 points on Thursday, with 47 percent support to his 45.3 percent.

The former secretary of state is losing support among voters after renewed controversy over her use of a private email server while she was head of the US State Department.

FBI Director James Comey told Congress in a letter made public on Friday that his agency was looking into new emails that may be connected to Clinton.

Clinton was investigated by the FBI over her use of the private server and how she handled classified information while she was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. However, Comey concluded in July that there was not enough evidence to bring criminal charges against Clinton.

The FBI has revealed very little to the public about the new emails under investigation, except that they were uncovered during an unrelated investigation into former US congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
