    Pool

    No malarkey jokes please. Vice President Joe Biden was the victor of Thursday night’s veep debate, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Friday. Forty-two percent of registered voters crowned Biden winner, while 35 percent tipped their hat to his Republican challenger Paul Ryan. The results were similar among independent voters. Last night, CBS released a poll that said Biden won 50 percent to Ryan’s 31 percent, but that poll was conducted among a sample of uncommitted voters. So while we can’t exactly count on them to vote for Obama, it may be safe to say Biden won last night’s popularity contest.
