President Obama's poll -- and free falling ever since the first debate.
Well the Joseph Biden's performance helped our hurt the campaign.
Wanted to talk about it former democratic pollster to six presidential campaigns and a Fox News contributor pat -- And president of the polling company Kellyanne Conway good to have both of -- He has the demeanor.
Of Joseph Biden this nearing the laughing the indifference.
How does that resonate with voters or does it.
Oh I think it resonates down the line and look first -- all the -- presidential debates don't matter what happens in the presidential campaign and we did.
We would've had vice president -- OK -- remember that debate.
You know Jack Kennedy -- but does the fact is what we have this it's a place to -- issues up.
-- -- Biden was trying to do was energize the base and I thought for most the debate he made points the problem was.
His demeanor and style -- over and then we keep getting things like you were dealing with.
82 in eruptions it is clear from the polling that we saw from CNN.
That this particular groups of people were not pleased with his demeanor the most important ones to the Democrats right now for Romney women.
And and -- -- would tune in independence three groups who were were put off by.
I thought Wright missed some opportunities I thought but habits -- first debate I thought he could have put Biden on his heels on the first thing Ghazi answer.
But he didn't but he had a solid debate needed but he needed to do Biden -- excited to his base but I'm not sure been extended beyond them.
Kelly and you have said that both Biden and Obama played into some stereotypes.
In their debates describe what you mean that Sarah cancer politicians as Terry tape from out politicians and you don't need a -- -- -- that women don't like two kinds of men.
One is that what Obama showed which is disinterested -- gauge would rather be somewhere else not particularly interest in -- conversation I had ever behave like candidate not going.
And all that.
Let's just say that when they do we don't -- on the second -- how.
He had vice president bite in a week later.
And being -- are key and get painted on Joker from bat -- smile.
Intel up staying is sort of the it -- -- Malcolm and on oh sure honey and being on his Blackberry watching sports.
And -- I think if he turned -- TV if you turn the volume down Joseph Biden was very alienating too many America's women.
Who are disproportionately.
Undecided voters -- left to persuade and I think.
Governor this year the debates matter that much more for two big reasons one is there's so much more noise is so much more money -- -- more ads.
That women today particularly returning on the TV in the comfort of their living rooms -- over the laptops having their -- -- opportunities.
And that they encountered and Mitt Romney that they were not expecting and they -- a Barack Obama that they had not nearing access to.
The second reason these debates are so important.
That people -- told for three straight weeks the race was over and I think iron any of them are really full time campaigning for the means Cheney on behalf of Obama.
Has come back ironically to fight and because they -- told for three weeks the race over the race is over.
The debate performances for Romney did get a preference for -- matter that much more because it completely -- -- -- expect -- -- that -- race -- -- He he would have if he had not done well when that debate they may well -- goodness help from fulfilling prophecy because I've never you know I described it in mind and our -- wrote.
As the media doing negative campaigning through polls the all the news organizations that are broke.
Spending hundreds of thousands of dollars up front polling results -- in -- can't win.
And all these state polls and suddenly how -- they've been they've been very slow on the uptake since the first debate just does -- matter -- incidents.
Kellyanne do you think that the town hall format is -- favor.
Obama more so than Mitt Romney which is the next debate this coming week.
And whatnot and not really in May favor him more that he got his clock cleaned in the first debate but I don't think you learn how to -- in the -- of the week I don't think you learn how to region -- It's an and the reason I know that is because.
The president was -- to to present governor Ronnie regaining that two minute closing statement and you know governor wedding Europe -- to voters in Arkansas.
Where you're talking into the area and friends it's being -- in high school whenever you ask the boss for raising about two minutes.
You look at that man in the near you practice the tone and the content into nation.
Julie -- Italy said Mr.
President your two minutes and he looked down and -- I'm thinking back up it was on prepared it wasn't -- so.
It may be better for Barack Obama but I still think that he's lacking.
That sort of mock -- -- on the job that people -- look at his face Italy governor.
People turn on two debates they saw a president who couldn't look up you know and it's -- vice president when he was shot up.
Thank you both for being here it's great to have you -- and.
