Voters Flocking to McCain for Experience, Romney for GOP Values
Voters on Super Tuesday seeking experience and strong leadership tended to choose Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., while former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney was the candidate cited as most in line with Republican values, according to exit polls conducted for the Associated Press and television networks.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee took the lead among white, born-again and evangelical Christian voters.
Most GOP voters cited the economy as their top issue, and they leaned toward McCain, while those most concerned with illegal immigration tended to vote for Romney.
Edison Media Research and Mitofsky International collected the data from exit polling conducted in 16 states.
