First post-debate poll out – race basically unchanged


A Reuters/Ipsos poll of voters taken after Wednesday’s presidential debate shows only minor movement.

In the poll’s last pre-debate survey, President Obama lead Mitt Romney by seven points.

After the debate, Obama’s lead remains five points, 48 percent to 43.

Twenty-seven percent of those surveyed said the debate had prompted them to see Romney in a more positive light, while 19 percent said it caused them to view him more negatively and 40 percent said it did not change their opinion.
