No worries, Joe wins the debate, but looses the election.

To the uninformed, it is easy to see why they think Biden won.

But Biden is a prick, and now everyone knows it.

This CNBC number is strange.

Even Yahoo, which is solidly center-left, came in at 50% - 50%, with 130,000 votes.

This should explain it Ryan was in the lead originally

this is strange — on CNN’s snap poll, it was 48% for Ryan and 44% for Biden — and CNN said it was “a statistical tie”

COMpost and NBC think Biden won. Big deal. Their readers are all Maoists anyway. We got CNN. Freakin’ CNN went for Ryan, and all I’m hearing is about Biden’s grin. :D

No need to start hand-wringing, people. We’re good.

To me it looked like Ryan by a nose, because Biden was smirking and was put down a couple of times.

was watching CNN this morning (hey i’m out of the country — only have CNN or BBC as choices) and a leftist said it was a tie (after he said “...even if, God forbid, the Republicans win...”).

It is, technically - within their margin of error.

Re: “CNN Statistical Tie”

Less than 400 people polled.

Margin of Error - plus or minus 5%

Bidens smirking and insane looking smiles made him look crazy and nasty. I don’t think he won at all.

The snippets on the morning CNBC broadcast make Biden look like he is off his meds. I hope that is the general takeaway.

Sure the CNBC number is strange. It allowed you to to vote multiple times (clear out cookies each time), and the KOS kids invaded it like we FReep polls. It`s absolutely without validity.

You guys put waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much stock into the vote as much as you want internet polls. They are not a bit scientific and are mostly designed to get hits to websites or viewers.

Seriously. I’m always surprised how much space is taken up on this site with threads about some online meaningless poll to Freep or whatever.

Not picking on you but these are just polls are nothing. Again mainly designed to get hits to websites or give the hosts on these shows something to yap about.

CNN had an actual real poll done of RV who watched the debate and Ryan won 48 to 44

And still more accurate than this CNBC internet poll with a MOE of 100%

Why is anyone worried at all about ANYTHING CNBC says?

Biden needed a knock out punch in order to right the ship for his team. He didn't have one. He came off as the crazy rude uncle. Therefore he lost.

"He came off as the crazy rude uncle."

Coupled with a lazy, indifferent, narcissist. Now that is a winning combination. ;-)

Online polls are stupid and useless.

There was a day when we owned them, and it was cool to Freep them. We invented the concept, we invented the word. Good for us.

But the other side caught on. They have more nitwits with all kinds of time on their hands. We should no longer fight them in this arena. Let the online polls be lopsided in their favor. People will see that for what it is.

Where we can make an impact is in the arena of ideas - blogs and forums.

I would encourage that each of us adopt a blog or two. Register, get in, and crush the opposition with facts, history, humor, and etiquette. Don't get into personal mud-slinging. Challenge opponents to cite factual sources, not feelings.

Most local papers have an online edition, and most online editions have a blog or a forum. Pick one, get in, and dominate. The Truth is on your side. I'm having the time of my life.

Remember, a lot more people view the forum than actually post. You are trying to sway the votes of the viewers. You will never convince the Obamanites and Dhimmicrats, but they are not your target, they are useful idiots. Your target is the undecided viewer and the unmotivated conservative.

This on the left will try to read into this debate as if they're reading tea leaves to predict how it will impact the future. At the very best for Biden, it might've been a political draw. The VP's body language, goofy antics, interruptions, his "uh uh uh's, " and utter lack of respect--if anything, turned many off.

And in the very end, this debate comes down to the President, not his #2. Obama's lack of preparedness and impotence against Romney will continue to be his downfall. This debate won't change that. It is the fact that Obama's performance matched his record over the past four years--dismal. If anything, Biden's performance should scare people into thinking, "this is the guy who would replace Obama, should something happen?"
