(Reuters) - Republican challenger Mitt Romney has extended his lead over President Barack Obama to 3 percentage points, according to a Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll released on Thursday, ahead of a high-stakes debate between the two candidates' running mates.
Romney now leads the Democrat by 47 percent to 44 percent among likely voters in the online poll, with less than a month before the November 6 election. The Republican had a one-point lead over Obama in survey results on Wednesday, his first in more than a month.
Romney has been enjoying one of his best runs of the campaign after handily winning the first presidential debate last week, partially due to Obama's passive performance in that contest.
"The momentum is in Romney's direction right now," Ipsos pollster Julia Clark said.

It’s funny to see the libtards today hang their hat on the one pollster they have always despised - Rasmussen.
True but it is fun to kick the Left with their own polls.
LOL the Kenyan has lost 3% of his welfare vote.
I am of the opinion that the election is already over. We just don’t know the official results yet.
I liked the analysis I saw on one post earlier; that people are disgusted with 0bama, they just wanted proof that Romney was a viable alternative. That’s why 70 million of them tuned in to the first debate. They saw what they came to see; Romney sold them as Presidential material, 0bama made them wonder how he ever got to the White House. I think virtually all the undecideds made up their minds last week.
Back in 2008, I believed McCain lost the election on the 3rd question of the first debate. This year, I believe Romney won the election with his performance, contrasted with the terrible performance by 0bama. We’ll have to see how the results actually turn out, but I stand by my statement that the decision has already been reached.
I trust REUTERS about as far as I can spit. I would not doubt they cook the poll in hopes of being able to show THE FOREIGNER rebounding after tonights debate.
