Analysis: Who won Reid-Angle debate?

Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN) - The debate in the nation's marquee Senate race was probably the dullest thing that happened in Las Vegas on Thursday night.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who is known to get awkward and wonky, was both at times. He seemed so intent on coming off as likable that he missed openings to challenge his rival, Republican insurgent Sharron Angle.

Angle, who astonished Democrats by raising $14 million in the past quarter, was the aggressor in the debate yet unsteady at that. She often seemed confused on the facts and lost in her own answers.

    Reid. Angle sounds like a moron and can't even debate on her policies without low blows. Childish idiot.

    It does not matter – BOTH OF THEM SUCKED in the Debate. With that said – When BOTH SUCK, stick with the Incumbent!!!!

    Angle acted like she was on CRACK and REID seems like he should RETIRE. I like Reid and I will back him up. I like him because he did not throw President Obama under the bus like other Democrats are doing!!!

    The debate was BORING – this article is BORING – and both Angle and Reid are BORING!!! Reid will WIN because he is LESS boring that Angle!!!

    This is T'SAH from Virginia and I approve this message!!

    I watched it. At times, Reid looked like he was taking a dump in his depends. Angle won.

    The fact of the matter is most of the tea party backed candidates do not have a clue, but unfortunately their handlers, carl rove, dick armey and the like know exactly what they are doing. Ignorance will continue to funnel this country's wealth into the coffers of a chosen few while they sell us out to special interest of the highest bidder.
