CNN isn't giving away real exit poll results, but they are giving hints about what's on the minds of New Hampshire voters today. Twenty-six percent of respondents told exit pollsters that health care and Medicare were the biggest factors in their votes. The U.S.-led war in Iraq followed with 22 percent, and 21 percent identified the economy and jobs as their biggest concerns.

Is the Iraq war now on the voters' back burner, as the Boston Globe concluded this morning? So far, at least, the issue that catapulted Howard Dean to the front of the pack early on is still relevant but not quite driving the vote.
