Exit polls data released by MSNBC reveals that for both Democrats and Republicans "the economy" is the most important issue. For Democrats, the war was number two. For Republicans, illegal immigration.

The big difference? 90 percent of Democrats said the economy was "not good." But only 56 percent of Republicans felt the same way.
