    Re: Who won the VP Debate?

    Even though Biden dominated the sole vice-presidential face-off, and performed better than Obama did last week, that might not be enough to affect the polls.

    But if Biden got the better of Ryan, nobody is claiming it was as clean or as big a win as Mitt Romney's over President Obama in their first debate — and of course there's still an active discussion on whether vice-presidential debates even matter. So, did Joe Biden's aggressive, bravado debate performance help Obama recover lost ground?

    The VP debate changed nothing: Biden's frequent interruptions "likely didn't win him many supporters," says James Rainey at The Los Angeles Times. But Ryan probably didn't "win many hearts, either, when he countered with a bit of snark" about Biden overcompensating for Obama's debate performance. All in all, though, each party will be pleased with its candidate — and nothing in the debate "helped reconfigure the race for the White House."

    Some voters still have questions, but "their answers will come from the presidential contenders, not their seconds." On to the next presidential debate.....snip~

    I do not think the forum functions allows multiple votes. I just logged on and it reads I already voted ... I would think that would be the case for all posters.
    when you log off, you'll see the poll cleared and asking you to vote again. i assume this works; i didn't try it myself.

    my guess is that people take advantage of that and vote multiple times.

    A while ago, some guy who was banned came back and messed with the polls repeatedly, and CaptainCourtesy busted him!

    Polls in the "Polls" forum are open to visitors. Polls in other places are not. If I understand the forum headings correctly.

    This is simply not true. I will not deny that I am biased, I believe the vast majority of this forum is, on the other hand look at the difference in how people are responding to this debate vs the other one. Its not just Republicans saying Biden came across as a jerk.

    I'd like to add: Romney didn't call Obama a liar.

    Even the libs know Biden blew it. Only one thing will be remembered from this debate. Joe the buffoon.

    Right, it's anyone who has a double standard for Republicans and Democrats when it comes to aggressiveness. Democrats are notorious for looking weak and refraining from aggression in comparison to Republicans. As soon as a Democrat does get aggressive, he's all of a sudden "rude" and "disrespectful." Please.

    How do you explain the fact that youre nearly the only one saying Romneys behavior was anything but normal in the debate? While almost everyone is saying Bidens behavior was strange. Whats more likely? Youre biased? Or everyone else is biased?

    I think the main goal for Biden in this debate was to please and in turn mobilize the base. From what I gather from liberals outside of the media, he did a good job of that because he said everything a lot of us feel and wanted Obama to communicate.
