Do you feel the Vice President Debate is just as important as the Presidential Debate?

You hear some much negative and positive on both so are they really important.

  • I wouldn't normally think so, but in this race I do. Mostly because a great deal of people are concerned about having a 72 year old man take office. People need to feel confident that Palin can be the President, not just the VP.

  • yes it is. either Palin or Biden will be second in command and god forbid something happens to the president the VP takes over.So yes it's very important. The VP slot should not be taken lightly. This is what others are saying:
    "In advance of tonight’s vice presidential debate, fewer than four-in-ten (37%) Americans say Sarah Palin is qualified to serve as president if necessary, while a majority (63%) say her opponent, Joe Biden, is qualified for the job. More than half (52%) viewed Palin as qualified in early September. Women are slightly less likely than men to view Palin as qualified. Both Palin and Biden are viewed favorably by a majority of Americans, but while views of Biden have remained virtually unchanged over the past month, the number of people viewing Palin unfavorably has risen from 32% to currently 40% as views have become increasingly polarized along partisan lines."

  • Yes!!  It is very important this time. 

    Here's an article that explains my beliefs and obviously others.

  • Not usually. People have made it so because Palin is such a controversial figure for some. When it comes down to it most people usually vote for the top of the ticket.
