Election: CNN's offers a tiny glimpse into voter mind-set

November 4, 2008 |  2:22 pm

The TV networks have promised to be very cautious today when drawing conclusions from surveys given to a select group of voters after they've cast their ballots, particularly when it comes to declaring a winner in the presidential race.

But that doesn't mean the networks won't use the information in other ways. CNN political analyst Bill Schneider just released a few findings culled from the first wave of exit polls:

About 62% of those surveyed cited the economy as the top issue on their minds. Ten percent cited the war, 9% percent chose terrorism, and 9% went with health care.
