Exit Polls 2010: Early Election Results Show Dissatisfaction
The Exit Polls Have Started Coming in Ahead of the 2010 Election Results and Not Surprisingly, the Economy is the #1 Issue For Voters
CNN's exit polls show that voters did not give a favorable mark to the Democrats or the Republicans.
According to their data, the Democrats have a 10 point favorability gap, with 43 percent claiming they are happy with the party and 53 percent saying they are not. When it comes to the GOP, 41 percent said they were happy, with 53 percent also saying they were not.
While the economy is the number one issue for voters this election with 62 percent of voters naming it as the top, unemployment is also something many are concerned about.
Health care ranked at 19 percent with illegal immigration and Afghanistan at eight and seven percent.
The Associated Press exit polls showed similar results, with the economy still coming out on top as the number one issue.
They conducted their polls on 9,000 pre-election interviews and election day interviews, and found that many were dissatisfied with the economy and the way the federal government is working.
About four in 10 voters said they were worried about the economy that they are worse off now financially than they were two years ago. Their exit polls also showed a lack of faith in both parties, including Barack Obama and Congress.
