An exit poll conducted by the Associated Press today shows that the economy is the number one issue on most voters’ minds by a large margin as they enter the voting booth.
AP’s polling shows that 60 percent of voters say the economy is their top concern, and yet only 4 out of 10 said they thought the economy was showing signs of recovery, while the others saw it as stagnant or getting worse.
ABC is reporting on exit poll results in Florida and Virginia. Florida voters say they trust Mitt Romney over Barack Obama when it comes to economic issues by a 5-point margin. ABC’s Virginia exit poll, though, shows the opposite of AP’s polling, with the majority seeing improvement in the economy.
Don’t get too excited. Blaming Bush is still alive and well.
