Exit poll: Economy dominant issue for voters

WASHINGTON (AP) - Voters around the country are intensely worried about the economy and dissatisfied with the way the federal government is working.

According to an Associated Press analysis of preliminary exit poll results and pre-election polls, voters say the economy eclipses any other issue as their top concern. Nearly all voters are worried about the future direction of the economy, and about 4 in 10 say they are worse off financially than they were two years ago.

Voters are expressing dissatisfaction with President Barack Obama and the Congress, and they don't have a favorable view of either the Democratic or Republican parties.

The preliminary results are based on Election Day and pre-election interviews with more than 9,000 voters.

    The results of the election says alot. Either you are stupid - or you've been granted a favor. I am sickoned by the ignorance of the voters. The present DA does favours - truth. I hope all of you are happy. I just wanted someone as District Attorney who is fair and doesn't judge on how much money you have or how much money you can contribute. Arthur Medley is the right man for the job.
