Who won the debate?

Unlike the first presidential face-off, opinions on the single debate between Vice President Biden and Paul Ryan are split. In a CNN snap poll of registered voters, 48 percent of respondents said Ryan won; 44 percent chose Biden. CBS' snap poll of only undecided voters has Biden with 50 percent and Ryan with 31. 

So what do you think? Here's the transcript and our fact-checks. WonkBlog footnoted the debate here. Bob Kaiser will hold a discussion of the debate at noon tomorrow; his quick take is that both candidates were "excellent ... in their very different ways." The Fix says Biden won the last 15 minutes but lost the first 75; Ryan didn't win or lose.
