MORE Early Exit Polls from CNN


Feed me, CNN, feed me. Just reported on America’s most trusted name in news:

– The network asked voters, “Was the economy a very important issue in how you voted?” Those who said yes voted for the Democrat more frequently than the Republican, by a 20% margin. Recent good news on jobs and the economy, which Bush trumpeted frequently on the campaign trail, does not appear to be helping the Republicans.

– CNN also asked, “Was terrorism a very important issue in how you voted?” Those who said yes voted for the Republican in their district 53% of the time, and for the Democrat 45% of the time. The “terror gap” seems to shrinking.

– And finally, CNN asked, “Was illegal immigration a very important issue in how you voted?” Those who said yes actually split, voting for the Republican as frequently as the Democrat.
