Biden Clear Winner in Early Polls After Debate

leave a comment »

Sen. Joe Biden scored well in overnight polling after his vice-presidential debate with Gov. Sarah Palin, providing more bad news for the Republican ticket that has been faltering in the past two weeks.

An unscientific poll on AOL shows Biden winning 48 percent to 45 percent. MSNBC’s unscientific poll had Biden winning 78.6 percent to 18.9 percent, which is not surprising given the liberal demographics of the network’s viewers. But what was more eye-catching is that FOX News’ unscientific poll has Biden up 61-39.

Other polls included the CNN/Opinion Research poll, which has Biden up 51-36, and CBS, who has Biden winning 46-21.

In the CBS poll, of the uncommitted voters, 18 percent now say they will vote Obama/Biden, while 10 percent now say McCain/Palin.

The CNN poll concluded that the results of the debate cannot be welcome news for the McCain-Palin campaign.
