CBS News Correspondent Sharyl Attkisson will provide live reports on the poll data for the broadcast and Webcast.

The Webcast will remain available for on-demand viewing at CBSNews.com, CNETTV.com and CBS Mobile News and will be distributed to CBS Audience Network partners and fed to CBS Radio News affiliates for insertion into their own programming or for podcasting.
