Who did U.S. voters think performed the best in the 2020 vice-presidential debate between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence?

First published in October 2020.

A CNN/SSRS flash poll after the vice-presidential debate concluded last night had a majority of U.S. voters (59%) saying Joe Bidenโ€™s running mate Kamala Harris โ€œdid the best jobโ€ over the 90 minutes of a debate tht was more courteous than last weekโ€™s horror show.

A total of 38% thought Vice President Mike Pence came out on top, while 3% thought the performances were equal. Naturally, each campaign claimed that their VP pick had the better night.
