Here's some good news for the Obama campaign and supporters!
A new Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that President Obama has taken the lead among early voters who have already cast their ballot. He's at 59 percent, while Republican nominee Mitt Romney has 31 percent, though the number of early voters is relatively small.
The poll also indicates that early voting will play a bigger role in the determination of the presidential election, even more so than it did in 2008 when it helped Obama trump Sen. John McCain.
The democratic incumbent currently leads Romney in the swing states of Ohio and Iowa, however the Romney campaign claims it is leading or tied with Obama among early voters in other battleground states, including Florida, North Carolina, Colorado, Nevada and New Hampshire. The Romney camp also claims that they've gained more volunteers and enthusiasm among voters after the first presidential debate where Romney was proclaimed the winner.
In order to ensure victory, Obama has to keep the momentum going and he can't afford to drop the ball at the next presidential debate, which takes place tomorrow!
