U.S. Elections: CNN Exit Poll Reveals Good News For Trump

Early CNN national exit poll at U.S. Elections just showed that voters are pided over top issues in their vote for president, but overall, they prioritize the economy over corona, which is the main argument over which President Donald Trump has founded his campaign concept.

According to the preliminary results of a nationwide CNN exit poll, about one-third called the economy their most critical issue, while roughly 1 in 5 citing racial inequality and about 1 in 6 named the coronavirus pandemic as most important to their vote. Roughly 1 in 10 each cited health care policy and crime and violence as their top issue.

With coronavirus cases rising in many states, nearly 7 in 10 voters say they view wearing a face mask as a public health responsibility more than as a personal choice.

According to the voting analysis, Trump's supporters are far more likely to call the economy their top issue (about 6 in 10 of the President's supporters say so) than to cite coronavirus (just 5% feel that way), while among former Vice President Joe Biden's supporters, more cite coronavirus (around 3 in 10) than the economy (about 1 in 10).

In the U.S. Elections, roughly 7 in 10 in Trump backers say rebuilding the economy should be the nation's priority over containing the spread of the virus, while among Joe Biden supporters, nearly 8 in 10 go the other way, saying that containing the coronavirus should be the bigger priority.

About half of voters say the nation's economy is in poor shape, though more say they are better off today than four years ago (around 4 in 10) than say they are worse off today (2 in 10). Still, a majority say they are experiencing financial hardship as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

And by the time more than hundred million voters have already casted their ballots in the U.S. Elections, in-person or by mail, before the big day, very few made up their minds in the final days of the contest.

 Just 4% say they made up their minds in the final week of the campaign, and almost three-quarters said they made up their minds before September.

The survey suggests a high level of new voter participation in the U.S. Elections. About 1 in 8 say 2020 is the first year they have ever voted, about on par with the share saying so in 2008.
