According to national polls, President Obama is slightly ahead of challenger Mitt Romney among early voters. Obama is under pressure to turn in a sparkling performance in tonight’s 2nd presidential debate. Romney dominated Mr. Obama in the 1st presidential debate. It’s a sure bet that the president won’t take the governor lightly tonight.
The Huffington Post reports that “Obama leads Romney by 59 percent to 31 percent among early voters, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling data compiled in recent weeks.” The lead is small but it is over the 10% measurement of polls’ accuracy.
Early voting played a major role in Obama’s historic landslide victory over John McCain in 2008. About 40 states have some form of early voting underway, according to the Huffington Post.
“We’ve made early investments in battleground states – where we’ve been registering folks and keeping an open conversation going with undecided voters for months – to build a historic grass-roots organization that will pay off when the votes are counted,” White House spokesman Adam Fetcher said.
