Some South Carolina exit poll results, but not who won

IT'S THE ECONOMY, AGAIN

Given three choices, half the voters said the economy was the most important issue facing the country - up from 38 percent in the only other competitive Democratic primary to date, in New Hampshire on January 8. About a quarter picked health care, comparable to New Hampshire. Only about one in five picked Iraq, down from 27 percent in New Hampshire.

WHAT DO YOU WANT IN A CANDIDATE?

As in New Hampshire, three in four Barack Obama voters said the most important quality in a candidate is that he can bring about needed change. Four in 10 Hillary Rodham Clinton voters said their priority was that a candidate has the right experience while nearly three in 10 picked change. As usual, John Edwards scored highest on empathy - at least half his voters said it was most important that the candidate "cares about people like me." Few voters said the candidate's electability was their top priority.

...

READY FOR A FIRST

Three in four voters said the country is ready to elect a black president and about as many said that about a woman. Somewhat more Clinton voters said the country is not ready to elect a black than Obama voters said the country wasn't ready to elect a female president.

ATTACK!!!!!

After the contentious Democratic debate Monday night, three in four Obama voters said Clinton had attacked Obama unfairly and slightly fewer than half accused their own candidate of attacking Clinton unfairly. Two-thirds of Clinton voters said Obama attacked her unfairly and nearly as many said she attacked him unfairly. Edwards voters were more likely than either of the other candidates' supporters to say both Clinton and Obama attacked each other unfairly.
