Presidential polls conducted after the second US presidential debate showed that President Barack Obama is winning over Republican nominee Mitt Romney. The presidential polls was conducted on Thursday, October 18, 2012.

There were two instant presidential polls conducted after the debate. Respondents were from registered voters who were watching the debate and the other set were from “debate-watchers who went into the debate uncommitted to either candidate.”

About 46 percent of registered voters who watched the debate favored Obama and 39 percent for Romney, according to a CNN presidential survey with four percentage points margin of error.

Other reports say that US President Obama continues to lead Republican presidential candidate Romney in the states of Iowa and Wisconsin.

Obama reportedly has the support of 51 percent of likely Iowa voters compared to Romney’s 43 percent.

In Wisconsin, Obama received a 51 percent support with Romney getting only 45 percent.

Iowa and Wisconsin are considered the battleground states even though they only account for 16 electoral votes.

Reports say that a candidate needs to get 270 electoral votes to win the 2012 US Presidential elections.

According to political analysts, US President Obama was able to make a strong comeback against Romney during the second presidential debate.
