A Reuters/Ipsos survey found that Barack Obama is leading Mitt Romney among early voters 54 percent to 39 percent, but a Gallup survey found just the opposite -- that Romney is currently leading Obama 52 to 45 percent. According to Gallup's Oct. 22-28 tracking polling, Romney is leading Obama 51 to 46 percent among all likely voters, but the race is tied at 49 percent among those who have not yet voted but intend to vote early. Early voting is now available in all 50 states, and according to WORLD Magazine, as many as 40 percent of all ballots cast this year will be by early voters.
