(CNN) – Sixty-two percent of voters polled Tuesday said the economy was their top election concern, according to early national exit polling.
It was far ahead of the second-place issue, the Iraq war, which was named as the top concern of 10 percent of voters polled.
Those who picked the Iraq war as their top issue mostly voted for Sen. Barack Obama in all but two states, according to the early exit polling results.
Health care and terrorism were tied at 9 percent as the issue voters were most concerned about, according to the exit polling. Those who picked terrorism as their top concern overwhelmingly choose Sen. John McCain, according to exit polling.
For the exit poll, voters were selected at random to fill out questionnaires after voting.
