Obama grabs wide lead among those who have already voted: Reuters/Ipsos poll
(Reuters) - President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney are neck and neck in opinion polls, but there is one area in which the incumbent appears to have a big advantage: those who have already cast their ballots.

Obama leads Romney by 59 percent to 31 percent among early voters, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling data compiled in recent weeks.

The sample size of early voters is relatively small, but the Democrat's margin is still well above the poll's credibility interval - a measurement of polls' accuracy - of 10 percentage points.

"Recent weeks" includes the time before that disastrous first debate. That wide lead is only an indication of how desperate the Democrats are to find good news somewhere. The polls of current opinion show Romney steadily gaining.

I love going to http://elections.huffingtonpost.com/pol ... y-vs-obama . You can "create your own" chart, to see the real numbers. I eliminate the smoothing, and also filter pollsters, to eliminate all radically democrat pollsters. Romney is gaining momentum.

Romney is going to win because God is gracious and will have mercy on us- He hears our prayers!
