CBS Poll: 50 Percent Of Uncommitted Voters Declare Biden The Debate Winner

A CBS News snap poll taken after Thursday night’s vice presidential debate indicates that half of “uncommitted voters” surveyed believe Vice President Joe Biden bested Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).  

The online poll shows that 50 percent of uncommitted voters — defined as voters who have either not settled on a candidate or who could change their minds — believe Biden won the debate in Danville, Ky., compared with 31 percent who said Ryan won.  Nineteen percent said the debate ended in a tie.
