According to a new CBS New/New York Times poll, an overwhelming majority of Americans (79%) think congressional Republican leaders put political expediency above the safety of pages.  Even 61% of Republicans surveyed believe that members of their party were more concerned about their political viability, than the well being of the pages.

And 62% of those surveyed believe the Republican leadership knew about the sexually charged emails then Rep. Mark Foley sent to minors, before the public learned about them.
