Thanks for Tweeting us with your concern. Please see the information below:
The Quick Votes on our CNN.com website allow our readers to express their opinions on topics in the news. The results of the Quick Votes are not official tallies or scientific polls. We do not consider the results news and do not use them as such. Each day's results are available for that day's vote solely for the enjoyment of our readers and viewers.
The results mentioned on American Morning came from the National Journal Political Insiders Poll, which is a regular survey of political operatives, strategists, campaign consultants, and lobbyists in both parties. Their site lists the names of both the Republican and Democrat Insiders who were surveyed for the debate. You can read them at http://nationaljournal.com/.
