2 out of 3 News Polls Call Debate for Ryan

How much credibility you assign to these things varies. CNN’s poll of registered voters seems to be the most credible and it shows Ryan winning by a limited margin. CBS’s poll is more dubious and shows Biden broadly winning. CNBC’s webpoll is the most dubious of all and shows Ryan with a sizable lead.

I suspect the actual results will come down to emotional attitudes. This was a clash of personalities more than politics.

First up CNN with the more [2] credible results.

Followed by CBS [7].

This is is listed as a poll of uncommitted voters… in Danville, Kentucky. Kentucky is not exactly a swing state. It’s solidly red. I’m sure the Obama team will find it useful to note that Biden’s jackassery might play well there, but it’s about as useful as… Biden.

Finally CNBC.

Overall it would seem that Ryan played better with informed voters. Certainly Biden won few fans outside the faithful, but his goal was to energize dispirited liberals, especially Chris Matthews, and in this he no doubt succeeded. And his antics will make Obama’s rudeness seem more toned down by comparison.
