Polls: Paul Ryan Beat Joe Biden in Vice-Presidential Debate
nstant polls conducted in the hours following the vice-presidential debate last night show voters believe Paul Ryan bested Joe Biden during their appearance at Centre College.
A CNN poll shows 48 percent of voters who watched the vice presidential debate think that Rep. Paul Ryan won whereas 44 percent say that Vice President Joe Biden was the winner. The four percent spread was within the 5 percent margin of error.
As CNN noted from its poll:
Half of all debate watchers questioned in the poll said the showdown didn’t make them more likely to vote for either of the candidates’ bosses, 28% said the debate made them more likely to vote for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and 21% said the faceoff made them more likely to vote to re-elect President Barack Obama.
According to the survey, 55% said that the vice president did better than expected, with 51% saying that the congressman from Wisconsin performed better than expected.
By a 50%-41% margin, debate watchers say that Ryan rather than Biden better expressed himself.
