    Re: Who won the VP Debate?

    I'm very surprised to see the numbers in this poll. I thought VP Biden's bluster and the pure audible volume of his voice would lean a few towards him.

    Biden was being aggressive. Whether his aggressiveness was rude is subjective, in my opinion. However, I don't think that that has anything to do with what's "normal" or "strange."

    I don't think Biden was rude. I think Ryan was just unprepared for such aggressiveness and that people are just calling Biden rude because Ryan couldn't come back at him.

    Take out Biden's theatrics and Ryan's evasiveness on certain issues.

    Look at the issues where they actually had exchanges and you see that they both made some good points. Both stretched the truth (to me this is not at all surprising, politicians+stretching the truth has become a common joke in our culture)
    Not far off of my assessment, when you simply look at the debate in and of itself. I'd give Biden a very slight edge based on how his theatrics coupled with Ryan's evasiveness actually made Ryan come across as inferior in some ways (It was actually a solid strategy by Biden, given the overall context).

    On a pure content measure, I'd give them a draw, though.

    I think the actual numbers have been messed with which happens a lot. I say that because the registered voters are mostly for Biden and the numbers are just way too skewed in the opposite direction.

    Someone is gaming the poll numbers by logging off and voting for Ryan. If you look at the actual user votes, Biden is ahead.

    Well, he leading 49:34 on the vote. You've got to discount all those multiple anonymous votes, y'know.

    I kinda figured. I hate when people do that. 49-34 sounds more like what I was anticipating. I will say that Rep Ryan had the zinger of the night when he eluded to VP Biden's propensity for stupid comments. That was hilarious.

    Re: Who won the VP Debate?

    Will someone please find the "anonymous voter" and exterminate him?

    I couldn't believe my eyes, either. It was like, "Wow, are people really starting to pull their heads out?".

    Agreed. Polls are gamed on this forum. The management should do something about it!

    I've seen the mods fix them before. It's usually just a matter of timing.
