Exit polls find voters split on Obama health law


The Christian Science Monitor and The Associated Press reported similar views among voters Tuesday. The Monitor reported a slight edge for voters who want to keep or expand the law, 47 percent to 45, while the AP found more voters favoring repeal, 50 percent to 43.

Meanwhile, healthcare was first in the minds of 17 percent of voters, according to a poll conducted for a consortium of news outlets. Sixty percent said the economy was their No. 1 issue. 

The health law passed in 2010 and was almost entirely upheld by the Supreme Court in June.
