The first wave of exit polling paints a picture of an electorate that is slightly more Republican than the one that helped elect President Obama in 2008.
And, unlike in 2008, more voters oppose an active federal government than support it. But the mood of the country has improved from four years ago with much of those gains coming among Democrats.
The economy remains the overwhelming top issue for most voters both in national exit polling and in the nine swing state exit polls that The Washington Post subscribes to.
For all of the talk of the electorate swinging in the races final days perhaps as a result of Hurricane Sandy and Obamas handling of it approximately seven in 10 voters said they made their mind up about a candidate before September.

WP sh** eaters.
First green sprout.
The exit pollers are only in Dem precincts!
That’s what Ive been saying..STOP BELIEVING THE MEDIA BS
Slightly more WaPo?
Hey CNN pollsters yesterday told me it was D+11%!
What total crap! Rasmussen and Gallop reports record +R numbers.
Drudge moved Ohio from lean Obama to tossup.
What a complete bunch of speculative rubbish, and they know it.
How can Obama win with an R+1 electorate?
The exit poll data makes no sense with that topline!
Every single election Freepers are so shocked when reality sets in. Never ceases to amaze me. Where now the exit polls are cooked just like weeks of polls showing the same thing.
Folks....we were warned many times that the Obamabot media would try to kill our morale....and that is exactly what is happening. I have seen these exit polls as dead wrong many times.. Remain calm. cool, collected. Stay focused on the prize we need so badly. We are going to win!!!
Hillary Clinton’s butt is slightly bigger than most...
I’m getting some results:
Indiana: Romney: 64% to Obama: 34% <1% returns in
Kentucky: Romney: 68% to Obama: 31% 1% of returns in
New Hampshire: Obama: 65% to Romney 34% <1% returns in
It’s all about ratings, got to make it look close to keep the audience riveted.
That’s okay, he moved sound election reporting from leaning to the American Public to flat out full on Drudge.
