One of the odd things about exit polls is that although most people have learned to be cautious about their precision in calling states for candidates, they are still treated as gospel when it comes to questions of demographic breakdowns, voter concerns, etc.
I guess that's because there's no other good source for such information.
Anyway, here are what the national exit polls are saying about general mood questions, courtesy of Marc Ambinder:
76% of the country believes it's off on the wrong track.
Bush's approval rating is 27%
More than 60% say the economy is their top voting issue; 9 in ten say the economy is in bad shape; more than 80% are worried about their own condition next year.
Change voters made up 35% of the electorate; 30% wanted someone who shared their values
