What voters have told us eight in ten voters across the country said it is important to elect more women people agree on something. They want more women in office has the one thing we can save tonight, people agree on also a majority of people also say that they want more, racial and ethnic minorities to be in office and talk about the reactions to the president. So many people are reacting one way or the other. And that's why they've gone to the polls here today are sixty five percent is Anthony mentioned said that the president was a part of their vote. The president's approve. Evil rating is is at forty four percent. But one of the things that strikes me we're looking tonight to see how much the president is affecting the vote. And how does that how is that match? Previous years. We always know the president plays a role, and we know the president's party doesn't farewell in these midterms in two thousand ten you'll remember very bad year for President Obama thirty eight percent of voters said they were voting to cast a vote against President Obama in two thousand ten well that number is thirty nine now for President Trump in two thousand fourteen another year in which the president was punished by voters.

Obamacare was totally radioactive this time around. They made a gamble that things had changed they made healthcare the centerpiece of their campaigns. And guess what according to the polls it was the centerpiece for voters to and by a huge margin. Forty one percent think healthcare was their top issue. Democrats and Republicans if you're a democrat running in a swing district in the house, you're looking at that. And that's a that's a big relief to you. If you're a democrat running in a red state, you're still hoping that that's going to get that surprise. I mean almost double the number on healthcare as opposed immigration from that exit poll. It depends. We don't we're going to have to look through the numbers tonight. And see exactly what that means. In other words, you may say Healthcare's your top vote, but you might be inspired by something else. What surprises me is how low the immigration number is. And that's really surprised spent so much time look at who turned out to the polls. It's women. In record numbers. The key thing we're going to be watching tonight is all sitting here all night long as how did white women vote. Donald Trump won them in the last election.
