    Who won the VP debate last night?  The networks.

    That "liberal media" network CNN produced a poll saying that Pence won.

    Personally, I thought Kaine did much better than expected and won with more substance on issues and effective attacks on Trump. Pence had weak replies to the Trump attacks and seemed vague about issues.

    But if the poll says that Pence won, then I must have missed why.

    Pence came across as someone I wouldn't mind seeing as President.

    Pence talked about issues, handled things well really, between being interrupted half the time by Kaine, and the moderator throwing some fast balls at him (a couple that he whiffed on) while lobbing mostly softballs to Kaine... most of all though he remained calm, and replied with sound answers.

    Kaine didn't do horrible, but I think his spending all his time 'quoting' Trump often taking things 'out of context' to put it in the worst light possible didn't help him much... a little more on sound answers, a little less quoting Trump and he might have come across better.

      I agree that Kaine overquoted Trump. Worth noting:

      "Pence won overall, but lost with Trump," a senior Trump adviser told me. "He can't stand to be upstaged." - John Harwood, CNBC

    I did not watch the debate but from what I heard afterwards, I figured America lost. The debate had little to do with issues and what really mattered. Is this the best we can do? Trump and Clinton are both two sides of the same coin. It is time for a new currency.
