Undecided voters in Ohio who watched Tuesday’s vice presidential debate were turned off by Democratic running mate Tim Kaine’s repeated interruptions of Republican Mike Pence, according to a focus group conducted by pollster Frank Luntz.

Luntz live tweeted results during the debate at Longwood University. “Mike Pence is winning because Tim Kaine cannot debate like an adult without interruptions,” he wrote.

“Kaine is interrupting way too much,” Luntz tweeted, adding: “The focus group wants the moderator to lay down the law and shut him up until it’s his turn.”

The focus group, Luntz said, was comprised of 29 undecided Ohio voters, including people leaning towards both Trump and Clinton.
