Obama and Romney tied

2012-10-09 21:31

Washington - Republican Mitt Romney has erased US President Barack Obama's advantage in the presidential race and the two candidates are now tied among likely voters, according to a Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll released on Tuesday.

With the 6 November election four weeks away, Romney and Obama each command 45%, the daily tracking poll found.

Obama held a steady lead in the poll for most of September, but Romney narrowed the gap following a strong debate performance last week. Obama had been leading by 2 percentage points in the last poll on Sunday.

Voters' personal views of Romney improved across a wide range of attributes following the debate, the poll found.

The online survey of 1 157 likely voters was conducted between 5 and 9 October.

The precision of the poll is measured using a credibility interval, which is plus or minus 3.3 percentage points.

    We Americans are doomed because we are letting go of God. First we aloud muslim Obummer with a false bith certificite to be the President and now we have a mormon moron also wanting to be the President. America used to be a Christian nation but now with all these catholics and stuff crossing the Mexico border we are going to become a country without God. But then this is all predicted in the Bible so I can know we are in the End Times and Jesus will return and we true believers will leave this world to SATAN. If only Michelle Bachman or Rick Santorum had been our candidate we would have a chance of being saved from this evil. GOD AND GUNS FOUNDED AND CREATED AMERICA AND HAS KEPT HER FREE FOR MORE THAN 200 YEARS SO WHEN WE LOSE OUR GOD WE WILL LOSE OUR COUNTRY!
