Washington: Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has erased US President Barack Obama's advantage in the presidential race and the two candidates are now tied among likely voters, according to a new poll.
According to the Reuters/Ipsos Poll, with the November 6 election just four weeks away, Romney and Obama each command 45 percent support among likely voters.
Obama earlier had a steady lead in the poll for most of September, but Romney narrowed the gap after a strong performance in the first presidential debate last week.
Obama had been leading by two-percentage points in the last poll, News 24 reports.
The poll found that voters' personal views of Romney improved across a wide range of attributes following the debate.
