Exit Poll Results: Expect Taxes Up and Worried About Health Care (Update: State Exit Polls Added)
Update (6:14) State Results:
Fl 52-44, Ga47-51, Mi 60-39, Mh 57-43, Mn 60-39, Pa 57-42, Va 55-45, Wi 58 42, Oh 54-45, Nc 52-48, In 52-48, Mo 52-48, Nv 55-45, Nm 56-43
Fox’s exit poll results are out. As everyone’s noting the primary concern is the economy, but what I found more interesting were these results:
67% are worried about being able to afford health care
70% predict their taxes will go up under Obama
61% expect their taxes will go up if McCain wins
49% expect taxes will go up no matter who wins
American’s aren’t quite as unrealistic as politicians think. They know a lot of spending has occured, and they know taxes will probably have to go up as a result. And there appears to be enough worry about affordable health care that universal health care should absolutely be on the table after the election.
Update (6:11 EST): HuffPo has detailed State exit polls here.
