Vice presidential debate statistically even result

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- A CNN-ORC International Poll shows voters who watched Thursday's vice presidential debate narrowly favored Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan over Vice President Joe Biden 48 percent to 44 percent. 

There is a five percent margin of error in this poll and it's a statistically even result.

According to ABC News, a Yahoo poll of more than 130,000 people say the debate was a tie.

Vice President Biden and Ryan delivered stark differences on domestic and foreign policy.

The next presidential debate will be on Tuesday. President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will square-off in Hempstead, New York for their second meeting.
