California voters concerned about economy; Equally surprising: Sky blue

In one of the less surprising news stories of the night, exit polls show that the number one issue for voters in the California gubernatorial and Senate races is... the economy.

In slightly less unsurprising news, California voters aren't showing huge support for outsiders. While the anti-incumbent wave has been felt across the country, largely driven by the Tea Party, it seems to be having a smaller effect in California; business outsiders like Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman and Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina are both currently trailing in the latest result totals.

What issues other than the economy influenced your vote today?
