    I think Ryan did great he made me proud to be a republican and even more proud to be an American where we have people who know what this country and what our people need

    I loved Wolf blitzer trying to spin it. 48% 44% ryab – basically a tie based on the margin of error. UM HELLO!!!!! or another landslide if you take Plus minus 5 points. Plus 5 point swing means 53% – 39% Now THAT's a spin. Only mention the margin of error to HELP JOE BIDEN – hahahahahaha

    l'm not that well versed on politics but I am smart enough to know that the shape the country was in before the President took over would take longer than 4 yrs. l'm not that naive. actually I was surprised so many people are. smiling Joe didn't interrupt as much as Romney.

    Pual Ryan did a marvellous job, gave a clear message to American People what Romney and Ryan can do to the country. Joe biden failed to get a message out by how the current policies will turn out to be good in next 4 years.

    Biden used bullying tactics to control tonight's debate. It was disgraceful to watch him treat Congressman Ryan with such disrespect and frustrating to watch Ryan not step up and put a stop to it. I thought Ryan was overpowered by VP Biden's horrid disdain for the rules. Ryan looked respectful, poised, and very educated. A lesser man would not have fared nearly as well

    Obama/Biden won of course -Biden really drove it home. Ryan continued to lie as usual. Never answered any of the questions asked of him about Medicare, Social Security, Abortion and Middle East. Continued to downplay all the accomplishments the President has done for our country. Lyan Ryan

    The news outlets are reporting the results of the vice presidential debate as follows:
    ● 48% of registered voters say Paul Ryan won
    ● 44% of registered voters say Joe Biden won
    ● 8% of registered voters say they're unsure who won the debate, but they are sure that Joe Biden is a weasel

    Where is CNN getting these poll reults from. Joe Biden won hands down and he even won on the "Quick Vote" on their site. So I am very confused.

    Congratulations VP Biden you did EVERYTHING you needed to do, plus some. It doesn't matter what the polls say you spoke directly to the American people and totallly blew the deerhunter away with foreign policy. Ryan looked so lost and ignorant it was hard to even watch. I love the way you debunked all his lies and assured voters who is and will be fighting for them and it's clearly NOT the Ryan/Romney ticket.

    Ryan on the other hand, appeared to be training as the new CEO-reading from PowerPoints at a Board meeting. I'm sure SNL has a skit already prepared on the amount of water he needed to keep from running off the stage.

    Biden exposed Ryan for the liar he is and his remark about the president's debate last week, showed just how classless and insecure they are (in case there were any doubts).

    I am so proud of you Joe and I think the American people saw tonight the Ryan/Romney team should be nowhere near the WhiteHouse as they are total buffoons.

    Joe Biden was great and you can bet behind the scene tonight, the Ryan/Romney team is in panic mode right now.

    Thank you Joe for a job well done.

    Why do you make it so difficult to find where you can vote on your page in these polls ? This could be the reason your poll is saying Ryan won this debate !
    I saw the debate and on facts and specifics Biden was the clear winner ! Ryan did a lot of dodging the specifics even when asked by the commentator twice to be more specific ! Fact check showed Ryan did a lot of lying about the differences between their two plans ,his tax plan that wasn't supported by math !

    Paul Ryan not only won, but also the clear choice for putting America back in the black.

    Joe Biden of course really won the debate. He presented facts and was very truthful. Mr. Ryan of course continued with all the lies about the President of the United States. Flip Flop Changed his views about abortion, the war, taxes and Medicare. I feel that Mr Biden is very trust worthy. He is the person to be Vice-President for the next four years. Mr Obama and Mr Biden really cares about the middle class.

    Sad and embarrassing VP Biden in the second highest office in our land and he acts so disrespectful, sarcastic, insulting , discourteous, arrogant, bad mannered with sneering and smirking throughout entire debate all on National television. Seriously we want this guy as VP another four years. I don't think so.
