Early results from exit polls in seven states holding Super Tuesday Republican presidential primaries show that the economy is the top issue across every state.

In addition, voters in all seven states are most seeking a candidate with the ability to defeat President Barack Obama in the November election.

The seven states voting in primaries Tuesday represent a wide range of Republicans, from the most moderate in Vermont and Massachusetts to the most conservative and religious in Oklahoma and Tennessee.

The focus Tuesday was on Ohio, a pivotal state for GOP hopes in November. There, nearly 8 in 10 express unhappiness with the government, including nearly 4 in 10 saying they are angry.

Practically every Ohio GOP voter expresses worry about the country's economy.
