As some national commentators have noted, a big part of the Romney bump has been a widening enthusiasm gap. Biden does have an opportunity to help with that, especially women. Plenty of material to work with on Ryan in regards to women's issues.
And, based on his DNC speech, Biden will likely hammer the blue collar, GM, middle class schtick a lot. Basically, he needs to get women, unions, minorities feeling uncomfortable about a Romney presidency again, not willing to give that nice guy in the Denver debate the benefit of the doubt.
Either way, while VP debate won't create a huge bump in one direction, it could stop (or continue) the current Romney momentum, IMO. Fewer people will watch, but media coverage will be significant, and the media's take on "who won" does a lot to sway polls.
