SV.com Poll: Who Won the Vice Presidential Debate?

Vice President Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan traded savage blows during last night’s debate. The Vice President came out swinging, which was expected following what many viewed as a subdued performance by President Obama during the first presidential debate with Mitt Romney.  See who sportsmen chose as the winner of the first debate at the Polling Center.

This was a very different atmosphere from the first presidential debate. Facial expressions, and the way in which the two men engaged, may have had as much to do with how people viewed who won as the substance of the two candidate’s arguments. (To see a replay of the debate go to: http://www.youtube.com/politics?feature=etp-tv-ype-f3b57114a0)

The Vice President took advantage of the split-screen television format to roll his eyes, smile broadly and even chuckle at times during many of Ryan’s remarks. He repeatedly interrupted Ryan, prompting Ryan at one point during a discussion on Medicare to say: “I know you’re under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground, but people would be better served if we don’t keep interrupting each other.” Republicans have cried foul, while democrats have said that this was simply Joe Biden being himself.

So, did anyone really win last night?

The latest CNN poll at: http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/10/11/cnn-poll-on-debate-winner-ryan-48-biden-44/?hpt=hp_t1 shows 48% of those polled felt Ryan won while 44% gave the victory to Biden. Remember, however, that this poll is only of those who actually watched the debate and does note represent all Americans.

In the end, both candidates did what they came to do: Biden, to bolster his party following the first presidential debate and Ryan, to ensure that Republicans did not give up any ground that could slow their recent surge in momentum. Many are calling the Vice Presidential debate a draw, but what was your take?

    Every time Joe Biden opens his mouth, he cements his legacy as the clown idiot of American politics and makes many of us worried that he is so close to the presidency and the nuclear codes. The guy has no concept of the truth nor what reality is. All he goes by are his lies and the fantasy world he has constructed (well that also includes the rest of the Liberal Democrats) to wallow in. Just the fact the White House press secretary had to spend so much time today clarifying for the Whtie House press corp what Biden really meant to say last night instead of what he really said last night, illustrates how dangerous Biden is to the USA. Let us resolve ourselves to put out to pasture, America’s crazy uncle and let’s make sure he cannot get to anything sharp or pointed in retirement.

  • I must show appreciation to this writer just
    for bailing me out of this type of condition. Just
    after surfing through the the web and getting methods that
    were not helpful, I was thinking my entire life was done.

    Living without the presence of approaches to the issues you’ve fixed by way of your post is a critical case, and ones that would have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I hadn’t noticed the website.
    That talents and kindness in dealing with all the things was precious.
    I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come upon such a stuff like this. I can also now relish my future. Thanks very much for your reliable and sensible guide. I won’t
    hesitate to refer your blog to anybody who will need guidance on this
    issue.
