GREEN BAY-- Vice President Joe Biden is looking to ride any momentum gained from his debate performance while speaking with voters at UW-La Crosse.
"Anyone who watched that debate, I don’t think there's any doubt that we have a fundamentally different vision for America and frankly a fundamentally different value set,” Biden said.
UW Green Bay political science professor Michael Kraft says the debate is too close to call.
"The polls seem to show that either the debate was a tie this time or Biden came out ahead," Kraft said.
College republicans Eric Kissinger and Adam Van Marte weren't impressed by Biden.
"It was pretty unprofessional how Vice President Biden handled himself,” Kissinger said.
"Laughing and smirking during a debate especially when we're handling such a crisis in the country, it should not be how a vice president acts,” Van Marte said.
The campus democrats defend Biden’s performance.
“If you look back on the first debate, Romney won because he was the same way, and Paul Ryan was little more laid back,” said freshman College Democrat Lashawna Tucker
"Biden upped the ante, maybe a little too much, but in his defense I will say he did set the bar for the president next week,” said college democrat Steve Schmitt.
It’s a debate that will affect how the next debate plays out and could have an impact on the polls as we head toward November,
