Exit polls: Churchgoers back Talent, stem cell proponents help McCaskill
(CNN) -- Missouri voters cited the economy as the most important issue this election, with 61 percent of these voters supporting Democratic Senate candidate Claire McCaskill, according to exit polls.

Her opponent, Sen. Jim Talent, won overwhelming support -- 73 percent to McCaskill's 25 percent -- among the 31 percent of exit poll respondents who identified themselves as white evangelicals. Other voters favored McCaskill, 61 to 37 percent. Similarly, Talent soundly won the vote among those who go to church at least once a week, while McCaskill did better among those who attended church "occasionally."

Of the Missouri voters supporting the stem cell research initiative, 75 percent favored McCaskill -- with 79 percent of those opposing the measure backing Talent.
