Obama’s Lead Narrows Postdebate

Watch out, Mr. President: the gap is narrowing. According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Friday, Obama holds a mere 2-point lead—46 to Romney’s 44 percent—after Wednesday’s debate. The survey finds a third of voters feel more positive about Romney after the debates, while a fifth feel more negative about Obama. The president had a 5-point lead just a day after the debate, but despite going on the offensive, his margin seems to be shrinking. A Rasmussen Reports poll taken Thursday night in the swing state of Ohio also showed voters favoring Romney 51 percent over Obama’s 48 percent.
