How to get a count and sub-counts from a SQL query?

I have the following table of data:
+--------+------+----+----------+
|      id    | cp   | mk | date       |
+--------+-----+----+------------+
|         1 |    1 | 0    | 2011-01-10 |
|         2 |    1 | 1    | 2011-01-10 |
|         3 |    1 | 0    | 2011-01-10 |
|         4 |    0 | 1    | 2011-01-10 |
|         5 |    1 | 0    | 2011-01-10 |
|         6 |    1 | 1    | 2011-01-10 |
|         7 |    1 | 1    | 2011-01-10 |
+--------+-----+----+----------------+

What I want to do is get a resultset that groups by date (so for this sample I'll get one row back), and gives me the count of records that have cp=1 or mk=1 and also a count of how many records had cp=1 and how many had mk=1.

So I want the results to show me:
count => 7
count(cp=1) => 6
count(mk=1) => 4
date => 2011-01-10

I was hoping that something like this would work:
SELECT COUNT(*), COUNT(cp=1), COUNT(mk=1), date FROM table WHERE cp=1 or mk=1 GROUP BY date;

but the second and third COUNT give me the same as the COUNT(*), it doesn't filter it for just the cp=1 or mk=1.

I then started to think maybe I need to use a subquery that is something like:
SELECT COUNT(*), cp, mk, date FROM table WHERE (cp=1 or mk=1) and date = '2011-01-10' GROUP BY cp, mk, date;
as a subquery and then the outer query will process that data, but not sure.

Appreciate any help, thanks!!

try this :

SELECT COUNT(1), SUM(cp), SUM(mk), MAX(date) FROM table GROUP BY date;

Thanks, this works great for my example.  What I need it for doesn't use 1 or 0 in the cp and mk columns, but this helps.
