WASHINGTON — Ready for even more months of battling for the Republican presidential nomination? Most voters in Illinois primary elections on Tuesday have little problem with that, as long as their candidate wins.

An exit poll of Illinois votersshows that around two-thirds want their own candidate to win, even if it takes him additional months to prevail. Fewer than a third want the contest to end quickly, even if their favorite loses.

The survey also shows continued worries about the economy. One in 5 says the economy is beginning to recover. About a third say it's staying the same, while almost half say it's getting worse.

As usual in state contests so far, the economy is the top issue. And the largest share of voters wants a candidate who can defeat President Barack Obama.

The polls close at 8 p.m. Eastern time.
