Tonight is the first and only vice presidential debate and we have some new numbers on what voters think about both candidates and their running mates.
Paul Ryan says he's ready to take on the Vice President. "We think he's probably going to come at me like a cannonball but the Achilles heel he has is President Obama's record," said the Republican Vice Presidential nominee.
Ryan is in Kentucky after several days of debate prep in Florida and Virginia. he's reportedly done three mock debates.
The Vice President's been in Delaware, studying Ryan's book, his speeches, and his budget. "I just want to make sure that when I say these things that I don't have the Congressman saying 'No, no no, I don't have that position" or 'That's not the Governor's position,'" said Vice President Joe Biden.
"There is a lot of pressure on Vice President Biden to take the fight to Paul Ryan in an attempt to slow Mitt Romney's momentum from last week's debate," said CNBC Chief Washington Correspondent John Harwood.
The White House, reluctant to address the President's performance in Denver, said this about next week's presidential debate:
"It's not about him. It's not about his opponent. It's not about one party or the other. It's about what would you do," said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. "What will you do when you get into office?"
Tonight, the number two men face off. Pew Research finds 51 percent view Vice President Biden unfavorably, more than Ryan. 40 to 34 percent think Ryan will win tonight's debate.
