Published on Oct 27, 2012 11:57 PM

WASHINGTON (REUTERS) - President Barack Obama holds a narrow lead of 2 percentage points over Republican challenger Mitt Romney in Reuters/Ipsos poll results released today, leaving the race effectively tied as fewer voters say they are likely to change their minds.

Mr Obama led Mr Romney by 47 per cent to 45 per cent among likely voters, a slim margin within the daily national online tracking survey's credibility interval.

The poll also found that 88 per cent of registered voters now say they will definitely vote for their candidate, leaving just 12 per cent who say they could change their minds, 10 days before Election Day on Nov. 6.

An average of about 15 per cent said they could switch contenders in Reuters/Ipsos polling last week.
