On CBS's website they now have a banner headline reporting the results of their poll.

Lyin Ryan got 31%

19% still don't know

Biden won on knowledgeable 85% vs Ryan's 75% (Before/After Debate - so they both improved in that regard but Joe by more).

Biden won on who would be more qualified to be President if necessary. Ryan got only 49%.

This is from their 'Scientifically Selected Sample' of 500 uncommitted voters.


PBS Charlie Rose - "when it came to the economy Biden UNLOADED on Ryan" LOL!

Al Hunt - Biden did everything Obama failed to do last week. (it was a beatdown - paraphrase)

Ryan showed he could hold his own in the major leagues - LOL.

Rich Lowry - Biden was playing by Cable TV rules. He came off as off putting and rude. (Hey if it's good for Romney it's good for Biden).

Chuck Todd - Biden was the aggressor. He controlled the debate.  Biden said Romney 18 times, Ryan said his name 9 times. Uh, ok.

Al Hunt - Ryan didn't hurt his ticket. SCORE!

Chuck Todd - factcheckers won't be busy tomorrow (!). Both answered the religion question really well.

John Heileman - trying to blunt the impression of Biden's success by reminding viewers just how bad Obama was. Remember? "Where was Obama last week? Next week at Hofstra is going to be even More Important!!!!!"

"Republicans won't be as disappointed with Ryan as Democrats were with Obama". LOL!

Katty Kay - people will remember Biden's mannerisms more than what he said. Arrogant.

Chuck Todd - this win for Biden isn't that meaningful. The only result that would have been meaningful is if Ryan had cleaned Biden's clock.

John Dickerson -  Biden had his fist in Ryan's mouth the whole time.

Rich (starburst) Lowry - the Ryan people specifically negotiated for the seated format on the premise that it's harder to be a jerk when you're seated. Biden obviously disproved that. (eyeroll).

Chuck Todd distracted by baseball game. Huge sigh of relief in Chicago. Romney bump bigger nationally than in battlegrounds. Obama structural advantage still holds - levees haven't broken.

David Letterman weighs in - the only thing Ryan had to was not look like a beady eyed weasel. Before the debate Ryan said he would 'stick to the facts'. See, he's already lying.

eXtina - Biden won this debate because he showed passion. I think voters will appreciate that.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
