No convention bounce for Obama, Reuters/Ipsos poll

U.S. President Barack Obama has failed to receive a significant convention bounce in popular support from the Democratic National Convention, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

The latest daily tracking poll found Republican Mitt Romney still holding on to a marginal lead of 45 percent compared to Obama's 44 percent among likely voters on Thursday.

Romney had led by 46 percent to 44 percent in Wednesday's poll.

The online survey included questions to voters before former President Bill Clinton's speech on Wednesday, so Clinton's influence has not yet been taken into account.

Political analysts say Obama could get a delayed bounce.

Romney began his Tampa, Florida convention last week behind Obama, 46 percent to 42 percent, before recording a small lead.

The findings are from an Ipsos poll conducted for Reuters from September 2-6. A sample of 1,623 American registered voters was interviewed online for the survey.

The precision of the Reuters/Ipsos online polls is measured using a credibility interval of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.
