The economy remained the top issue for most voters, and less than half of them think it’s getting better, according to exit polls conducted by the Associated Press.

Half of those voters said they blame former President George W. Bush for the poor economy more than Barack Obama, poll results said.

Sixty percent of voters told pollsters they were most concerned about the economy. That number is down only two percent from exit polls conducted during the 2008 election, held less than two months after the economy cratered.

Of those surveyed, 39 percent said the economy is improving, 31 percent said it’s getting worse and 28 percent believe it’s staying about the same, the poll said.

Voters were evenly split on what they think about the direction of the country, with 48 percent saying the U.S. is going the right way and 52 saying we’re on the wrong path.
