Similar because Obama, having taking the lead a month ago for the first time in this survey of Israeli experts, is still leading in September. But, the lead is narrower: 7 for Obama, 6.9 for Romney.
Not exactly similar as on the one hand, the gap is narrower, on the other hand, the number of panelists preferring one over the other has changed. Four prefer Romney, four prefer Obama, and two panelists give the two candidates the same score. The reason for the gap then, is clear: the panelists supporting Obama tend to rank him higher compared to Romney, than those supporting Romney rank him compared to Obama.
