Obama leads Romney 49 to 42 percent in Reuters/Ipsos poll

With just over a month to go until the November 6 election, President Barack Obama maintains his lead over Republican opponent Mitt Romney, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll.

The daily tracking poll released on Thursday said Obama had 49 percent support to 42 percent for Romney among likely voters. Ipsos interviewed 1,194 registered voters for the online survey.

Obama received a bump in support following his Democratic National Convention earlier this month.

Romney on the other hand has suffered in the wake of a leak of a secretly filmed video at a private fundraiser in May, in which he was heard saying 47 percent of Americans were dependent on government handouts and unlikely to support him.

The Romney campaign has stated that its internal data indicates the race is much tighter than what most polls currently suggest.

The accuracy of the Reuters/Ipsos online polls is measured using a credibility interval. In this instance, the poll had a credibility interval of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
