Vice presidential candidates Republican Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Democratic Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine debated but may not have changed any undecided votes.

Mike Pence had a narrow victory in the debate, according to a CNN/ORC poll of viewers. Pence topped Tim Kaine 48% to 42% with a margin of error of 4.5 percentage points.

Most think the VP candidates do not matter but almost one quarter became presidents. Spence had a good line when interrupted that went something like “Let me interrupt you so I can finish my time.”

Pence seemed calmer as Kaine kept interrupting 70 times. That was Trump’s style. In many past presidential elections the taller candidate won and also the one who smiled the most. Often wives vote the way their husbands do. In the past if a father always bought a Chevy or Ford for an example, the son followed in his buying habits. Pence had a sarcastic look when attacked and rarely smiled.

Kaine said the Iran nuclear agreement would eliminate their nukes. Fact checking said it would only freeze them. During the debate Donald Trump was tweeting and often he does at 3 am. According to one report in the past presidential debate, it was agreed Clinton would not call Trump by his first name but did so to possibly unravel him.

According to Politico: Counting the states where Clinton’s lead in the polling average is 3 points or greater — and adding them to the states President Barack Obama won in 2012 (plus the District of Columbia) — Clinton would win 302 electoral votes to Trump’s 215. Only Nevada and North Carolina are currently within that 3-point margin. http://www.politico.com/story/2016/10/clinton-trump-battleground-polls-229064
