Exit poll results from CNN for the New Hampshire primary show that almost half of all GOP voters decided in the past few days whom they would support.

According to the poll, 46 percent of Republicans made up their mind on who to vote for in the last few days. Just 22 percent of Democrats waited that long to decide.

Among GOP voters, about three quarters said they were very worried about the economy, six in 10 are very worried about terrorism and nine in 10 said they were very dissatisfied with the federal government.

Fifty percent of Republican voters said they feel betrayed by their party, which may indicate a tilt toward “outsider” candidates like Ted CruzTed Cruz56 memorable moments from a wild presidential race Is Georgia turning blue?
