The economy is the top issue motivating Alabamians to vote Tuesday, according to preliminary exit polling conducted for The Associated Press.

Among the findings:


More than 6 of 10 voters identified the economy as the top issue. The federal budget deficit and health care were about tied for a distant second. About 7 out of 10 voters said their family’s situation is about the same or worse than it was four years ago. About 3 out of 10 said it is better.


About half of the voters identified themselves as born-again or evangelical Christians and more than half said they attend religious services at least once a week. About 1 of 10 said they never attend religious services.


Alabama voters indicated they had made up their minds long before the candidates bombarded them with TV ads. About 8 of 10 said they did so before September.


About 6 of 10 voters said government is doing too many things better left to businesses and individuals, while about 4 of 10 said government should do more to solve problems.
