Some news stories are now reporting that exit polls in various states suggest that President Barack Obama has not been a major factor in the voting (but don’t expect the Democrats not to use that point if they win some and the GOP to use it as a key point if they win some). But — to be sure – -the economy is.
Here are some links to the original source material:
Exit Polls: Obama as (non) factor?
Exit poll: In Virginia, it’s all about the economy
Exit polls: In New Jersey, Obama not a major factor
Exit poll: Economy concerns New Jersey voters most

Personal note: I will be offline much of the night but be sure check back often to read the take on the elections by various TMV writers.
