The presidential election could be impacted by the upcoming Vice Presidential candidate debate, according to David Steinberg, Lecturer in the Communication Studies department, as quoted in a recent article by Reuters.
According to the article:
“Biden has a chance to undo some of the damage from the first debate,” said David Steinberg, a debate coach and political communications specialist at the University of Miami.
“The vice president’s biggest job will be as a fact checker,” he said. “He can come in and say, ‘Well, this is what Governor Romney said last Wednesday, and this is why it’s wrong.'”
“It would be nice to be Biden,” Steinberg said. “He’s got a wider range of stuff he can say and people go, ‘Oh, that’s just Biden.’ If Ryan said it, they will be looking at him through a microscope.”
