Ipsos/Reuters Daily Election Tracking: Obama 47% - Romney 45%

Ipsos/Reuters Daily Election Tracking: Obama 47% - Romney 45%

Washington, D.C. - Today’s Reuters/Ipsos data has Obama on 47% and Romney on 45%, a two-point lead for Obama.

Our data today also includes the ‘candidate attribute’ questions (last published Sept 28th) to allow us to assess if/how the debates have affected perceptions of each candidate. There isn’t as much movement in these numbers as we might expect given the narrowing in the voting intention numbers; this suggests that while the debate was effective in energizing the Republican base and giving Romney a boost, it hasn’t fundamentally shifted perceptions of either candidate.

Some more detail on the attribute questions:

Romney’s rating on ‘eloquent’ sees the most improvement, up four points from 23% to 27%. Obama’s rating on this metric is essentially unchanged (48%, compared to 49% on Sept 28th)

Obama’s largest change is on ‘is a good person’, up four points from 43% to 47% (Romney’s score on this issue remains unchanged, on 31% compared to 32% on Sept 28th)

Romney has seen a 3 point improvement on ‘presidential’ (34% to 37%), ‘tough enough for the job’ (35% to 38%), and ‘would be fun to meet in person’ (21% to 24%). However, Obama still retains a lead on all of these metrics.

There have been no significant changes on any of the other attributes for either candidate

We have added one new attribute to this battery of questions - bipartisanship. On this issue, Obama leads Romney 34% to 27%We’ve left in the debate questions for post-debate analysis, but there has been little change to these numbers since yesterday

Wow, Romney's numbers on those metrics really sucked pre-debate.


Romney gains after debate ... with Republicans (Obama with independents)
