St. Louis (KSDK) - The first and only vice presidential debate is Thursday night.
Vice President Joe Biden and GOP Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan meet in Danville, Kentucky at 8 p.m., and just in time for the event, some new research has come out.
A Pew poll shows 51 percent of voters view Vice President Biden unfavorably. That's more than Congressman Paul Ryan.
Forty percent think Ryan will win compared to 34 percent for Biden.
Congressman Ryan's said to have done three mock debates in preparation for Thursday night. Vice President Biden says he's been studying all things Ryan, his speeches, his budget, his book.
NBC's Steve Handelsman joined NewsChannel 5 live at 4 p.m. from Danville, Kentucky to talk about the upcoming debate.
