Three Things Each Candidate Needs To Do to Win the Danville Debat
Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) are set to debate this evening in Danville, Kentucky just four weeks before Election Day.
While most people will likely be paying attention to the men at the top of each party's ticket on November 6, President Barack Obama's performance in his first debate with Republican challenger Mitt Romney left Democrats scrambling for any opportunity to gain ground. Polls now show Romney, who had been trailing Obama among likely voters, has pulled even with Obama after a torrent of positive debate-performance reviews.
That's added pressure for both candidates to make a great impression with the millions of people expected to tune in tonight. Not to mention being number two on the ticket is tricky. Biden and Ryan will have to do well enough in their own right to convince voters they're up to the job of being, or continuing to be, vice president, while at the same time using the debate as an opportunity to point out why their respective running mate is the right man for the job of commander-in-chief.
Here is what each candidate needs to do to win the debate.
