The upcoming presidential election could hinge on Hamilton County, Ohio.
Cincinnati voters swing between parties.
Barack Obama won there in 2008, but Republicans Tracy Winkler and Tony Rosiello are confident this time.
"Last night's debate is not going to hurt us in this county," Rosiello predicts.
"Congressman Ryan really held his own," Winkler agrees.
Ollie Huy figures Biden won.
"I will vote for Obama. Period," he says.
President Obama was pleased with the debate.
"I thought Joe Biden was terrific tonight. I couldn't be prouder of him," he said afterward.
Meanwhile, Mitt Romney is implying Biden doubled down on denial when he said "We weren't told U.S. diplomats in Libya asked for more security."
"When the Vice President of the United States directly contradicts the testimony, sworn testimony, of State Department officials, American citizens have a right to know just what's going on," Romney told supporters in Virginia.
Back in Cincinnati, a bakery is polling Ohio voters with cookie sales.
So far it's Obama in the lead.
