US Vice-President debate: Viewers favour Biden over Ryan

Updated: October 19, 2012 12:10 IST

US Vice President Joe Biden and his Republican rival Paul Ryan battled fiercely over foreign policy and the economy in a lively debate on Thursday, with Biden aggressively defending the administration's policies and dismissing Ryan's criticism. Seeking to win back the momentum for the Democrats' campaign after a poor debate performance by President Barack Obama last week, Biden frequently went on the attack. At a debate viewing party in heavily democratic Los Angeles, most viewers agree that the vice president's attack paid off. However, many interviewees expressed their disappointment in Obama following last week's debate, and believe that Biden's debating skills turned the game around in the President's favor once more.
