So, now that you've heard them, who do you think won, Biden or Ryan? Take our poll and have your voice heard.
The Remaining Debates:

Wednesday, Oct. 22 - Third Presidential Debate
No doubt Biden lost. And no doubt he will lose big time when the fact checking gets done on this debate.
What is important is how the independents viewed it.
i fixed the link
poll totals when i voted was 51% Ryan/43% Biden
CBS & ABC “Analysts” try to “establish” that Biden won.
What I think doesn’t matter.
Biden presented himself as an asshole. No doubt there. The left assholes will love him. The left non-assholes will be embarrassed.
What Biteme did tonight was fragment / chip away at his base.
Those who loved it are glued a little tighter but some chunks fell off.
Who do you think won the vice presidential debate?
Paul Ryan 51%
Joe Biden 43%
Total Votes: 13342
Its NOT going to change the dynamics of this presidential race because people don’t vote for the Vice President.
I would have been happy to vote for Paul Ryan had he been at the top of the ticket.
He’s the conservative loyal soldier we should have had in the first place but GOP bigwigs insisted on saddling us with a barely electable liberal.
Mitt Happens has to get there under his own power. A good Veep can only help him so much as the debate showed us tonight.
Irrelevant question. These guys can only hurt their ticket and neither did that. Biden played Lunch Pail Joe to the hilt. Ryan stayed calm, cool and collected. They both did what they were supposed to do.
Right after I voted the numbers were 53 Ryan, Biden 41
Close, but Ryan won.
Biden GAFFED again.
He said SYRIA was a bigger country than LIBYA!!!!
Syria has about 72,500 sq.miles and Libya has about 600,00+!!!!
When Ryan brought up Obamacare, Biden said this came up in the debate with SARAH PALIN!!!!! THERE WAS no Obamacare in 2008!!!!
Biden inferred that there intelligence had NOT told them that the attack in Benghazi was by an organized group. A FEW DAYS ago it was revealed by a Mr. Kennedy that they HAD told the Administration such a thing.
Biden looked and sounded like a supercilious, arrogant old ass with his snickering grin and idiotic laughing. Ryan should have been more aggressive in cutting Biden off when he interrupted and reciprocated by interrupting BIDEN when he spoke.
I agree with you - your observation reinforces what I already said.
The Veep doesn’t make a political difference like they used to and neither guy can help the the guy at the top of the ticket win.
That’s the responsibility of the candidate running for President. Obama has a big hole to climb out of next week.
We’ll see if he can be the Comeback Kid of 2012.
Like Biden, stupid is as stupid does. Only 26 days before the beginning of the end of the idiocy known as Obama/Biden.
9 If a wise man contends with a foolish man,
Whether the fool rages or laughs, there is no peace.
Same here Ron C. 53 41 6
Will this change swing voters’ minds? I’d have to say “no.”
Barring a Romney meltdown next week, I think we have a pretty good idea of who’ll win in November.
Obama faces a near impossible task. It would be an easy task if his opponent was destroying himself.
And he has to make Mitt Happens look unelectable and still make himself look good. I’d say that’s a tall order.
Lib commentators think Biden did poorly with all the laughter and smiles.
CNN focus group...1/3 say Ryan won, 1/3 Biden, 1/3 draw.
