Poll: Romney narrows likability gap

While Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has erased President Barack Obama's overall poll lead, the Democrat remains ahead on some core issues such as healthcare and voters would still rather spend time with Obama than with Romney.


Romney, however, has narrowed the gap on "likability" as well as on how "presidential" he is compared to Obama. The shifting numbers in a Reuters/Ipsos poll hint at where the two candidates are vulnerable in Tuesday's town hall debate in Hempstead, New York. (Reuters)
