POLL: Do you plan to watch the first presidential debate (live)? [View all]

Rather than 'anecdotal' responses, it would seem more scientific to post an actual poll, which I can do, so I am.

ScrippsNews and ABC are reportedly going to simulcast it, so you don't need to have cable to see it on CNN...

Edit: Also now reported as being carried by CBS and NBC, so hopefully anyone interested will be able to find it--
although it will be up to local network affiliate channels whether they broadcast it or not-- seems like most of them would.
