President Barack Obama, helped by the debate performance of Vice President Joe Biden, has stopped the bleeding in Nevada and regained a little of his lost ground.

A new poll by the Las Vegas Review-Journal and 8NewsNow shows Obama leading GOP challenger Mitt Romney by 48 to 45 percent. A poll taken after the president’s disastrous first debate with Romney had the president clinging to a one-point edge, 47 to 46 percent, in the poll conducted by SurveyUSA.

"Obama's bleeding has been stopped," Jay Leve of SurveyUSA told the Review-Journal. "Obama definitely lost blood, but it wasn't fatal."

After the first debate, Romney picked up support in Nevada from those over 50. Romney had a nine-point edge in that demographic but it was cut to just three after the vice presidential debate between Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan where the vice president attacked Ryan on his stand on reforming Medicare.

"Ryan is painted with a bad Medicare message, and Biden was effective," Eric Herzik, a political science professor at the University of Nevada, Reno told the paper.

The poll found that men continue to favor Romney by a margin of 49-44, and women Obama by 52-42. Hispanics favor the president by a margin of 52 percent to 44 percent.

The poll, conducted October 11 through 15 before the second presidential debate, survey 806 likely voters and was conducted in English and Spanish.
