CHICAGO (AP) - Preliminary exit poll data show Illinois voters are most concerned about the economy and are divided on the nation's health care overhaul.

Exit polling conducted in Illinois for The Associated Press shows Illinois voters say the biggest economic problem is joblessness. Those feelings come as most said their family's financial outlook - and the nation's overall - was better than or the same as four years ago.

Obama's overhaul of the nation's healthcare system was getting mixed reviews in his home state. Voters appeared evenly divided about whether they wanted to see the Affordable Care Act repealed or preserved.

When it comes to the idea of raising income taxes, most voters felt families making over $250,000 a year could afford to pay a little more.
