Reuters poll: Convention helps Romney pull even with Obama


Reuters/Ipsos poll tracking poll finds Mitt Romney getting a boost from his party’s nominating convention in Tampa this week.

Romney and President Obama are deadlocked among likely voters at 43% each. That was an improvement for Romney from Obama’s two-point lead on Tuesday and four-point lead on Monday.

“There is movement toward Romney, which is traditional for a convention,” said pollster Julia Clark: It’s small and the change is incremental, but it’s been moving the last couple of days.”
