Presidential race tied but most think Obama will win, Reuters/Ipsos poll

The presidential race remains neck and neck one week before Election Day but most Americans believe President Barack Obama will defeat Republican Mitt Romney, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Tuesday.

Obama leads Romney by 47 percent to 46 percent, a statistically insignificant margin.

Neither candidate has held a clear lead since early October.

However, 53 percent of all registered voters predicted Obama would win the November 6 election compared to only 29 percent who favored Romney.

A majority also expected Obama to win their state.

Obama also holds an advantage among the 22 percent who have already cast their ballots. Some 55 percent of this group voted for Obama, while 40 percent said they had voted for Romney.

The four-day poll was not significantly affected by storm Sandy as only a small fraction of the 3,293 interviews were completed after the storm hit on Monday.
