Obama's lead narrows after debate flop

resident Obama's lead over GOP hopeful Mitt Romney has narrowed to two percentage points, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll released Friday. Obama's lackluster debate performance is being blamed for the narrowing gap. Obama leads Romney 46 percent to 44 percent — and just two days ago, that lead was six points. Still, it remains to be seen if the debate fallout will have long-term effects on Obama's re-election prospects, as he has two more chances to redeem himself at debates on Oct. 16 and 22.
