Obama, Romney tied ahead of Democratic convention

U.S. President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney were tied at 45 percent according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll on Sunday.

The draw enables the incumbent to edge ahead of his opponent at the Democratic National Convention.

The Democrats are set to nominate Obama for a second term this week in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The findings were from the seventh day of a rolling online poll conducted for Reuters by Ipsos to judge voters' sentiments during the two-week political convention season.

A week ago, the poll said Obama led Romney 46 percent to 42 percent.

Romney’s own convention last week in Tampa, Florida, provided him with a small boost to equal his rival but go no further.

Obama, who is to accept the nomination on Thursday, is on track to get his own convention bounce.

A sample of 1,441 American registered voters was interviewed online. The accuracy of the Reuters/Ipsos online polls is measured using a credibility interval of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points for all respondents.
