Poll: Romney voters motivated by opposition to Obama

Mitt Romney is tied with President Obama, according to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll, but the people who plan to vote for him are motivated more by their opposition to the president than by their support for the Republican challenger.

The survey published Tuesday showed 47 percent of registered voters favor Obama and 47 percent prefer Romney. The former Massachusetts governor has closed a 3-point gap since the poll was conducted last, in May.
