I think it's a draw. No one really performed much better than the other. Biden was the man of experience and Ryan was very good speaker. Biden was not gaff prone but all that smirking and laughing while Ryan was speaking. That is not going to reflect well on Biden. Goodness gracious. That was a bit smug....actually very smug. But in terms of point scoring and debating skills, it was a close tie.
I think i agree with you.

Krauthammer said something pretty good. He said if you just saw the transcript it was a tie, if you heard it on the radio Biden won, if you saw it on tv Ryan won. I do think the smugness, the smirking, and the laughing especially was off-putting, to put it mildly.
