Who Really Won Last Night’s Debate?

There has yet to be any solid consensus on who won last night’s vice presidential debate.

Immediately following the debate, two quick-take polls were released showing opposite results. CNN’s poll of registered voters who watched the debate said GOP V.P. candidate Paul Ryan won by four points. On the flip side, in CBS News’ poll of uncommitted voters, 50 percent said it was Veep Joe Biden who won, with only 31 percent choosing Ryan as the winner.

Among national newspapers, only NYT took a stand. The board declared Biden the winner. Both WSJ and WaPo said there wasn’t enough substance and shied away from making a choice. USA Today called the debate “a draw.”
