CNN POLL: R 48% B 44%...

Half of all debate watchers questioned in the poll said the showdown didn't make them more likely to vote for either of the candidates' bosses, 28% said the debate made them more likely to vote for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and 21% said the faceoff made them more likely to vote to re-elect President Barack Obama.

According to the survey, 55% said that the vice president did better than expected, with 51% saying that the congressman from Wisconsin performed better than expected.

By a 50%-41% margin, debate watchers say that Ryan rather than Biden better expressed himself.

Seven in ten said Biden was seen as spending more time attacking his opponent, and that may be a contributing factor in Ryan's 53%-43% advantage on being more likable. Ryan also had a slight advantage on being more in touch with the problems of average Americans.

One of the top jobs for the candidates in a vice presidential debate is to convince Americans that they would be able to step into the top job if something happened to the president. The poll indicates that both men were seen as qualified to be president if necessary, by roughly equal numbers.

Hawaii Republican Party Chairman David Chang's Statement on the Vice-Presidential Debate 
News Release from Hawaii Republican Party
Honolulu, Hawaii - Hawaii Republican party Chairman David Chang issued the following statement regarding last night's Vice-Presidential debate held at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky:
"Since the announcement of Paul Ryan as Governor Romney's running mate, the Hawaii Republican Party has been looking forward to the showdown between these two spirited Vice-Presidential candidates. Paul Ryan clearly outlined the effective policies of the Romney/Ryan ticket that will help to make and keep America strong. It was clear from the beginning that Congressman Ryan has a keen understanding of foreign and domestic policies, especially the economic policies that are at the forefront of this election. Congressman Ryan was reasoned, calm, and respectful when discussing how he and Governor Mitt Romney will deliver a real recovery - one that will help reverse the policies of the current administration that have "buried" America's middle class for the last 4 years.
"Congressman Ryan kept the focus on specific policy issues, addressed the questions head on, and gave respect to his opponent. There is one thing clear after this debate - one Vice-Presidential candidate is statesmen like and has a clear path to make our country stronger  - the other candidate is Joe Biden."
