Republican candidates were heavily favored over their Democratic opponents among full-time workers and most college-educated Americans, a CNN exit poll shows.
During the midterm elections Tuesday, CNN asked voters leaving the voting booth a series of questions, including, “Do you work full-time for pay?”
About 60 percent responded that they did work full-time for pay. Of those, 54 percent said they had voted for a Republican, while 44 percent stated they voted for a Democrat. Another two percent reported voting for “other” candidates.
Of the 40 percent who said they did not work full-time for pay, 48 percent said they voted for Democrats. Another 50 reported voting Republican, and two percent voted for “other” candidates.
