Paul Ryan-Joe Biden Debate: Who Do You Think 'Won'?

The sole vice-presidential debate is done; did either candidate change your mind?

With ABC's Martha Raddatz moderating, Vice-President Joe Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan tackled issues and each other's positions in a brisk debate Thursday night.

As the three of them sat around a table at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky, issues touched on ranged from the deficit and taxes to the war in Afghanistan and abortion.

On Friday, we'll hear from Republican and Democratic leaders and activists in Massachusetts about what they think about the debate.

But first, now, we want to hear from you. What did you think?

I also agree. With the show that Biden put on last night I am really worried if he were to take over.

I'd definitely would not sleep better if Paul Ryan became President, as opposed to Joe Biden. It would be like going into the worst time warp (more like a black hole) possible; the respect our country has finally given to individuals...such as child-bearing and marriage choices, issues that should matter to no one other than the people involved, would be set back decades. Instead of moving on, Ryan would work to set us back....what a nightmare it would be! Lola

Actually, I think out of the recent moderators she performed quite well. I don't think you would ever be able to find the "perfect" moderator. I didn't care for the style of debate - it lends itself to the interruptions and casual essence we saw. I thought the moderator was mush better than recent past moderators in keeping to the timeline and asking pointed questions. I do think she gave some significant passes to Biden but all in all, she was better. What are your suggestions for a moderator?

GREAT graph in this article regarding who takes the hit when the Bush tax cuts expire. http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20121008/BIZ01/210080318/Uptick-taxes-not-just-rich?odyssey=mod|newswell|text|FRONTPAGE|p

Ryan won by default, as Biden defeated Biden. Somehow I don't think a giggle qualifies as an answer, or a snicker as a rebuttal. I've seen 10-year-olds conduct themselves with more maturity and articulation than our current VPOTUS.
